As Nigeria battles the third wave of the pandemic, the agency disclosed that eight more people have died of complications related to the disease.

Since the country recorded its first cases in February 2020, the NCDC has confirmed a total of 193,644 cases from the 2,779,725 tested so far.

Of the figure, 179,249 people who tested positive to the disease have recovered and have been discharged while the nation’s death toll stands at 2,488.
