The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) has announced 23 new cases of coronavirus, bringing the total cases in Nigeria to 174.

In a tweet via its handle on Wednesday evening, the agency gave a breakdown as nine in Lagos, seven in the federal capital territory (FCT), five in Akwa Ibom, one in Kaduna and one in Bauchi.

“As at 08:00 pm 1st April there are 174 confirmed cases of #COVID19 reported in Nigeria. Nine have been discharged with two deaths,” the tweet read.

At a media briefing earlier on Wednesday, Chikwe Ihekweazu, director-general of NCDC, had said the cases were expected to rise as a result of the increase in capacity to test patients.

Nigeria’s capacity to test for COVID-19 increased after Jack Ma, Chinese billionaire, donated some kits.
