The PSC Chairman confirmed that Nigeria recorded about 500 cases daily in the last seven days.

The SGF said Lagos alone accounts for over 50 percent of the cases, adding that the development calls for great caution.

Mustapha urged Nigerians to keep observing the Non Pharmaceutical Intervention (NPIs) and also ensure they get vaccinated.

“Vaccination prevents severe cases and reduces hospitalisation and deaths, but does not eliminate contracting it, hence the need to religiously observe the NPIs,” he said.
