The number of coronavirus cases in Bauchi State increased from three to six on Saturday evening, announced the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control.

Bauchi is yet the only state in the North-East region with confirmed cases of COVID-19 including Governor Bala Mohammed who has been in isolation.

Adamawa, Taraba, Gombe, Yobe and Borno States are yet to record any confirmed case of the virus which now top 214 in Nigeria as of Saturday night.

“As at 10:10 pm 4th April, there are 214 confirmed cases of #COVID19 reported in Nigeria. Twenty-five have been discharged with two deaths,” the NCDC stated.

Lagos has the highest number of infections with 109 cases while Abuja follows with 43. The two cities are currently observing a 14-day lockdown as part of measures to break the circle of community transmission of the novel virus.

States yet to be affected in the North-East have also started taking precautionary measures including the closure of borders to forestall the importation of the virus into their location.
