No State Is COVID-19 Free, as Nigeria Records Over 20,000 Cases

The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control has said that over 20,919 cases have been recorded nationally, with 525 deaths - this as the Presidential Task Team announced that no State in the country is free from COVID-19. However Cross River State declared itself free of COVID-19 and accused the national government and the navy of trying to spread it to them. Cases have increased steadily as the government slowly reopened the economy and certain places of worship. There are still delays in the resumption of domestic flights as a large number of airports are not yet compliant with the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority requirements.
