Meanwhile, the Minister of Health, Dr Osagie Ehanire, during a daily briefing on COVID-19, on Thursday in Abuja, expressed concern over the community transmission of the virus.

He said that daily laboratory testing capacity for COVID-19 had been increased to 2,500 in the 15 molecular diagnosis laboratories across the country.

“Active community transmission is illustrated by the increasing number of confirmed persons who have COVID-19.

“This is a major challenge and necessitates a call on all citizens to take COVID-19 infection seriously, and take ownership of their health, and strictly adhere to public health advisories,” he said
