He noted that Nigeria currently records between 500 to 700 new cases of Covid-19 daily, this is different from what people predicted about a spike in the number of cases on Covid-19 in Nigeria. This he said had been made possible because of several intervention programs which have been aiming at reducing the spike of this disease.
