Scientific researchers are still learning about the disease, but they believe the virus originated in animals. At some point, one or more humans became infected from an animal, and those infected humans began infecting others.

Infected air droplets released during sneezing or coughing spread the disease from person to person.

It can also be transmitted when humans come into contact with virus-infected hands or surfaces and then touch their eyes, nose, or mouth with the contaminated hands.

COVID-19 was discovered in China and has since spread throughout the world.

Nigeria, however, has confirmed 357 new cases of COVID-19, as the virus resurfaces in parts of the country.

The number of new cases has continued to rise as authorities have yet to reinstate the lax measures put in place to combat the disease’s spread.

The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) explained in a tweet on Tuesday that the new infections were confirmed between July 9 and 11.

According to the report, these incidents occurred in five states and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

Lagos State had the most infections (292), followed by Yobe (25), Rivers (20), FCT (11), Kano (7), and Delta (2). According to the NCDC, four states recorded zero cases during the period: Abia, Kaduna, Plateau, and Sokoto.

Since the first COVID-19 case was reported in late February 2020, the total number of confirmed cases in the country has risen to 258,874.

Of the confirmed cases, 250,456 people have been discharged, while 3,144 people have died as a result of disease complications.
