A report released on Wednesday by the Nigerian Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) shows 184 people have been re-infected with corona virus across the country. Currently there are 4, 971 cases in the country.
The agency says more than 110 persons have been discharged that day, bringing the number of people who have recovered from the corona pandemic to 1, 070.
In fact, it is the largest number of people who have recovered since the outbreak in Nigeria in late February.
Of the new arrivals infected with the corona, 51 were from Lagos, and the 23 from Jigawa.
Bauchi and Katsina have a total of sixteen infected people each.
Meanwhile, the figures show that six people have died again in the last 24 hours as a result of being deported in Nigeria. Currently 164 people are killed by the virus.
Important facts about the virus
The corona virus was first discovered in Nigeria on February 27 after an Italian had landed with the virus at the Murtala Mohammed Airport in Lagos.
He and the first person infected by the disease on March 20 in northern Nigeria, Mohammed Atiku, have recovered and been discharged from the hospital.
On April 17, corona virus caused the death of Malam Abba Kyari, chief of staff of the Presidency of Nigeria. He is the highest-ranking man to die in office.
Governors such as Bala Mohammed, Nasir El-Rufai and Seyi Makinde of Oyo State were all affected by the outbreak before finally recovering.
There are still no cases of outbreaks in Kogi and Cross River states, but some are of the opinion that this is because the disease has not been tested in the two states.
Nigerian authorities say they have doubled the number of tests they are doing in the country, and say they now test about 1,000 in 24 hours.
