There are fears that Nigeria might experience its second COVID-19 lockdown following the increase in infections and disregard for the COVID-19 guidelines across the country.

According to Vanguard, The Nigerian Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), announced 300 new cases of the Coronavirus. NCDC also said after some weeks of recording a low number of cases in the country, the 300 new cases bring the total number of infections in Nigeria to 64,090.

According to Punch, Nigeria recorded 937 cases last week as against 923 the previous week.

Between Monday, November 2 and Friday, November 6, there was a steady increase in the number of confirmed cases, with 72 recorded on Monday; 137 on Tuesday; 155 on Wednesday; with the figure rising to 180 and 223 on Thursday and Friday, respectively.

The #EndSars protest may be responsible for the recent increase – according to virologist. Also, with place of worship, schools and other gathering opened, individuals tend to ignore the use of facemask and sanitizers as most believe the country is COVID free.

As of November 7th, states with the highest confirmed cases include : Lagos – 21,655, Federal Capital Territory – 6,212, Plateau – 3,676, Oyo – 3,515, Rivers – 2,866, and Kaduna – 2,698.
