Plateau moves up from 44 cases on Friday to 69 new infections, while Lagos moved from 27 cases on Friday to 21 cases today.
Lagos has consistently recorded a plunge in coronavirus infections in the last two weeks, an act that made the governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu deciding to open highers institutions, primary and second schools in the state next month.
Lagos has also shutdown four isolation centres for want of patients, with 43 patients currently in the three remaining isolation centres.
