It expressed gratitude for “collective efforts” by both government and private in response to the pandemic.
Mobile phone on MTN users on Saturday woke up to 100MB of free data to browse the websites of the federal health ministry, NCDC and WHO for information, according to the provider.
Tests have confirmed eight new coronavirus infections in the country, the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control said on Saturday, raising the national total to 89.

The other is the first to be recorded in Benue.
Abuja’s 14 cases on record is second only to Lagos.
Ogun and Oyo have recorded three each, two in Enugu, Edo and Bauchi, and one each in Ekiti, Osun and Rivers.
