According to figures released by the Nigeria Center for Disease Control (NCDC), 30 persons died from COVID-19 on Sunday, September 5, three deaths higher than the figure reported the previous day.

Twenty-three of the 30 deaths were reported in Lagos, the epicentre of the pandemic in Nigeria.

“On the 5th of September 2021, 459 new confirmed cases and 30 deaths were recorded in Nigeria,” NCDC said on its website, giving an update on the outbreak of the disease in the country.

The 459 new cases were reported from 19 states with Lagos also leading with 185 cases, followed by Abia and Oyo with 38 infections each. Akwa Ibom and Cross River had 33 new cases each, Osun reported 24 infections, followed by Ekiti with 23 and Benue with 15 new cases.
