Nigeria on Sunday recorded 62 new coronavirus infections, the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) has said.

The figure brought total infections in the country to 61,992.

For almost three months, Nigeria has not reported a daily figure higher than 300.

The 62 new cases were reported from 11 states - Taraba (18), Ogun (15), FCT (6), Kaduna (6), Katsina (4), Ondo (4), Ekiti (3), Rivers (3), Kano (1), Osun (1), and Sokoto (1).
