The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) recorded 1,064 new cases of COVID-19 on Saturday as the deadly scourge continued its renewed surge in the populous African nation.

The public health centre, in its verified website monitored on Sunday, said that 13 deaths were recorded on the date under review.

It attributed the recent surge in infections to the spread of the Delta variant in the country.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the staggering Saturday figure represented a huge leap compared to the 304 cases announced a day earlier.

The NCDC said that the new infections were recorded in nine states and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
