BREAKING: 17 New Coronavirus Cases Confirmed In Nigeria As Death Toll Hits 7

Nigeria has recorded 14 new coronavirus cases, bringing the number of infections in the country to 305.

The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, NCDC, announced this on its Twitter handle on Friday.

However, 58 patients have been discharged with 7 deaths recorded.

The Seventeen new cases of #COVID19 have been reported as follows:

8 in Lagos

3 in Katsina

2 in FCT

1 in Niger

1 in Kaduna

1 in Anambra

1 in Ondo.

Recall that Chikwe Ihekweazu, the director-general of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), has disclosed that 90% of COVID-19 patients recover without any intervention.

He said: “We should remember that 90 per cent of these patients recover without any intervention. So, if you take something and say you recovered and that something is why you recovered, it doesn’t quite add up.”

The NCDC boss further explained that very few viruses have a cure.

He said COVID-19 patients are given oxygen at the hospital which is not a treatment but administered to keep the patients alive for long enough to recover yourself.
