The Lagos State Commissioner for Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi has said that no new case of coronavirus was recorded in the state on Monday.

He confirmed this in a tweet on Tuesday.

This is coming barely 24 hours after the state reported 70 new COVID-19 cases, highest to be recorded by any state in Nigeria in one day.

Abayomi’s confirmation came a few hours after the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control also announced no new case in Lagos.

However, the state reported two deaths of COVID-19 patients.

According to data from the NCDC, Lagos has recorded 376 confirmed COVID-19 cases and discharged 97 patients.

Apart from Lagos, Akwa Ibom and Borno, other states that have recorded fatalities from COVID-19 are Edo, Katsina, Kano, and Delta, and Abuja.

Abayomi tweeted, “No new case of #COVID-19 was confirmed in Lagos on 20th April, 2020. However, #COVID19 related deaths were recorded in Lagos.

“One of the deceased was a 45 years old Nigerian male who returned from India in January 2020.”

However, three new states – Gombe, Sokoto and Abia – have joined states with reported cases of the virus, as the number of states with confirmed cases now reached 25.

In its breakdown of the cases, NCDC wrote: “On the 20th of April 2020, 38 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 were recorded in Nigeria. Till date, 665 cases have been confirmed, 188 cases have been discharged in Nigeria.

“Breakdown of cases by states: Lagos – 376, FCT-89, Kano-59, Osun-20, Oyo-16, Edo-15, Ogun-12, Kwara- nine, Katsina-12, Bauchi- seven, Kaduna- nine, Akwa Ibom- nine, Delta- four, Ekiti- four,
