The Centre said the recovery figure recorded for Lagos includes patients who were successfully treated and discharged from the state’s treatment centres, and those managed at their homes in various communities by the state.
Abuja has overtaken Lagos with the highest number of active COVID-19 cases in the country, the NCDC said, adding that Abuja has 2,767 active cases, while Lagos and Oyo States have 2,057 and 1,347 cases respectively.
The NCDC noted that Lagos accounted for 88 new COVID-19 infections out of the 288 cases reported from 15 states on Aug. 3.
“That brings the state’s total number of infections to 15,355,” NCDC said.
