Daily deaths from COVID-19 have declined in Nigeria in the past two weeks with no fatalities recorded from the disease in the past 48 hours.
The fatality toll in the country remains 2,058 in total with no deaths from the disease on Saturday as it was a day earlier.
This is according to an update published by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) Saturday night.
Also, in continuation of a steady run of low infection figures, the country recorded 50 new cases in six states on Saturday.
The new tally raised the total number of infections in the West African nation to 163,113, according to the NCDC data.
In the past one week, there has been a further decline in new cases as daily infections have fallen below 200. During the worst phase of the pandemic in Nigeria, between December 2020 and February 2021, Nigeria recorded an average daily infection of over 1,000 cases.
The NCDC data indicates that Africa’s most populous nation has gone past the worst phase of the pandemic although experts warns it might be too early to celebrate.
