The Nigerian Center for Disease Control (NCDC) has registered 26 new cases of COVID-19, bringing the total number of infections in the country to 164,233.

The NCDC revealed it on Sunday on its official Twitter account.

The center said the new cases had been recorded in five states and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

He said Ebonyi recorded 10 cases while Lagos recorded nine.

He said the CTF had recorded two cases, Kano-two, Osun-two and Oyo-one.

The NCDC revealed that seven people had been treated and returned from various isolation centers across the country in the past 24 hours.

The NCDC said 154,332 people have so far recovered from COVID-19 and have been discharged from hospital since the pandemic was reported in 2020.

The agency said Nigeria had not recorded any deaths from the complication of COVID-19 as of April 18.

The death toll, according to the center, remained as of 2061.

NCDC noted that a multisectoral National Emergency Operations Center (COU), activated at Level III, had continued to coordinate national response activities in the country.

The center advised Nigerians to regularly disinfect their surfaces in their homes, stores and offices to prevent the spread of infectious diseases in their communities.

“Take responsibility for protecting yourself, your loved ones, your customers, your employees and society against infections such as COVID-19,” he advised.

Meanwhile, as many children return to school, NCDC has advised parents to help their children stay safe by teaching and strengthening daily preventive actions by not lowering custody.

“They must wear a face mask properly, wash their hands regularly, observe physical distance, avoid large gatherings held indoors with little respect for preventive measures and always consult a doctor in case of illness.

“Most people infected with COVID-19 may not have symptoms but can pass the disease on to others.

“Let’s continue to adhere to all public health advisories on COVID-19 prevention,” he said.

He called on parents and guardians to inform school leaders of any development or sign that a child is not doing well.

“We are also appealing and urging parents to report to school leaders any family member showing signs of COVID-19.

“The fight against COVID-19 in schools, whether in boarding or day, requires the full participation of all,” he said. (NOPE)
