304 new cases of COVID-19 were recorded in Nigeria on Tuesday, August 4.

According to statistics released by the Nigeria Center for Disease Control NCDC, the FCT topped the list with 90 new cases and Lagos with 59 cases. Other states with new cases include Ondo – 39, Taraba – 18, Rivers – 17, Borno – 15, Adamawa – 12, Oyo – 11, Delta – 9, Edo – 6, Bauchi, Kwara, Ogun and Osun each having 4 cases, Bayelsa, Plateau and Niger each having 3 cases, Nasarawa – 2 and Kano – 1.

Nigeria now has 44,433 confirmed cases of the viral disease. 31,851 patients have so far been discharged with 910 fatalities recorded.


  1. it’s a very good sign that progress is being made in fighting the pandemic in Nigeria. But, the number of discharge patients reported within 24hrs baffled me. Over 11, 000 patients discarded in a day? Nigeria is a joke.
