Again, Lagos topped the chart on Wednesday with 88 out of 110 cases.
Rivers State reported 12 infections while Akwa Ibom reported four, and Jigawa and Ogun States reported two each. The FCT and Kano reported one infection each.
The data shows that at least a total of 164,408 people have recovered from the infection across the country so far while about 1,300 cases are said to be active.
Nigeria has tested more than 2.3 million samples out of its 200 million population.
More than 3.2 million persons have received their first doses of COVID-19 vaccines across the country.
