Abuja, Nigeria’s capital, is the second most impacted with a total of about 5,000 cases and 77 deaths.

In the past three weeks, Nigeria has not reported any daily infection above 300 and cases have fallen below 500 since late June, an indication that the country may have passed the worst stage of its coronavirus pandemic.

However, health experts have called for caution saying non-adherence to COVID-19 protocols could lead to an increase in infections.
