Nigeria’s COVID-19 cases crashed to 176 on Wednesday from the 296 cases recorded the previous day.

The nation’s total number of confirmed COVID-19 cases is put at 55,632, with 43,610 survivors discharged and 1,070 deaths.

The rise in figures on Tuesday was as a result of a spike in infections in Plateau, which raked in 183 cases, but the state recorded a sharp drop to 26 new cases on Wednesday.

Nigeria has been recording sharp decline in Coronavirus infections, but experts attributed this to low testing.
