Nigeria has recorded 27 new deaths from the coronavirus, even as the country recorded 1,114 fresh infections on Friday.

This was disclosed in the report published by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) in the early hours of Saturday.

The new cases were recorded in 21 states and the Federal Capital Territory, with Lagos still leading with 408 new infections.

The FCT had 95 cases; Plateau 90; Ondo 66; Kaduna 63; Oyo 56; Borno 46; Imo- 42; Edo 41; Ogun 37; Rivers 31; Ekiti 25; Yobe 20; Kano 18; Akwa Ibom 18; Delta 15; Osun 15; Kwara 11; Bayelsa 6; Nasarawa 6; Zamfara 4; and Bauchi 1.

102,780 are also said to have recovered, while the death toll now stands at 1,577.

Shortly after receiving his first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine in New York City, Guterres said the world must come together if progress is to be made.

Globally, at least 2,191,865 people have died from the virus since the outbreak emerged in China in December 2019, according to an AFP tally from official sources.

More than 101,436,360 cases have been registered.

The US remains the country that has suffered the highest toll with 433,206 deaths, followed by Brazil with 221,547 and Mexico with 155,145.

The number of deaths globally is, however, said to be underestimated as the toll is calculated from daily figures published by national health authorities and does not include later revisions by statistics agencies. (Channels TV)
