Nigeria has recorded 90 new coronavirus cases, 103 recoveries and 5 deaths across 8 states on Tuesday, September 15.

Nigeria Centre for Diseases Control (NCDC) via its official Twitter handle, stating;

On Monday, Nigeria recorded 56,388 coronavirus cases, 44,327 discharged and 1,083 deaths.

With the newly recorded infections, there are now 56,478 total cases, 44,430 discharged and 1,088 fatalities across the country.

Also, NCDC in its latest situation report has revealed that overall samples tested nationwide have increased from 442,075 to 443,987 as at September 14.

Meanwhile, Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 has said states are not doing enough COVID-19 tests despite the increased capacity.

As at the last count, there are 71 molecular laboratories in the country excluding the accredited private hospitals where COVID-19 tests can be conducted.

Apart from not collecting many samples and conducting enough tests, many states are no longer filing reports on the tests to the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).

The PTF said that on Monday only 13 states reported their figures in the last 24 hours (on Sunday).

It warned that although the number of confirmed cases are low, it is not a basis to draw any conclusion that the country is flattening the curve of the disease.
