Five hundred and ninety-nine new cases of COVID-19 were reported in the country on Tuesday, data from the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) have shown.

No new case was reported in Osun and Sokoto States.

As a result of the new infections reported, Nigeria has now confirmed a total of 239,019 since it reported its first case in February 2020.

Out of these confirmed cases, 213,180 people who initially tested positive have been discharged and 3,027 deaths have been recorded in all 36 states and the FCT.
