The new figure brings the total number of the deadly virus to 541 out of which 166 have been discharged on account of testing negative to the pandemic disease while the death toll increased to 19.

Of the 48 fresh cases, 23 of it were identified in Lagos, 12 in FCT, 10 in Kano, 2 in Ogun and 1 in Oyo.

While announcing the figures yesterday, the NCDC erroneously added one case to Ekiti State which had 3 cases at the time, making the new cases 49 in number.
