CoronaVirus in Nigeria (COVID-19)

Nigeria confirmed her first case of the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) on February 27, 2020. Since then COVID-19 has been declared a global pandemic by the WHO and a whole lot more has happened.

We had our first CoronaVirus related death on March 23 and the number of confirmed cases has now increased to 8,915.

We have also recorded 2,592 recoveries from the deadly virus with a total of 259 deaths. There are currently 6,064 active cases of CoronaVirus in Nigeria.

With the disease progressing very fast, it is hard to keep tabs on the progression. We couldn’t find any tool that gave all the details we wanted on the progress of the virus. Wikipedia has this page dedicated on the CoronaVirus in Nigeria, but did not provide all the charts we wanted.

This is why we are creating this page to help us keep tabs on how COVID-19 is progressing in Nigeria. Hope the find it useful too. All our data is sourced from the dedicated Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) COVID-19 page at covid19.ncdc.gov.ng and their twitter page @NCDCgov.
