COVID-19: Nigeria records 11 deaths, 636 infections on Friday..
The third wave of coronavirus pandemic is hitting Nigeria harder as 11 deaths were recorded on Friday, raising the nation’s total fatality to 2,211.
According to the latest update by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), 16 states and the federal capital territory, FCT, also reported a total of 636 new cases on Friday.
The disease centre said the infections recorded on Friday increased the country’s infection toll to 181,297.
The disease is ravaging the country amid the unending conflict between the Nigerian government and medical doctors under the banner of National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD).
The doctors’ strike entered its 13th day on Saturday, leaving many Nigerians in need of healthcare at the nation’s tertiary hospitals stranded.
Also, according to the NCDC update, more than 12,000 people are currently being managed for the pandemic across the country.
