This data set can be used to plot bar charts of COVID 19 incidence and estimate time dependent reproduction number in Nigeria and the six geo - political zones in the country. The data was collated from the daily COVID – 19 infections situation report in Nigeria numbers 01 – 89 from the 28th of February to 27th of May 2020 downloaded from the country’s Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) website ( ). The data files in .csv are presented with r codes that can be used to recreate the analysis. We used the R software version 3.6.1 to draw a combine bar plot of COVID 19 incidence in Nigeria and across the six geo - political zones. We estimated the TD - R0 for the country and the six geo - political zones in the country using the EpiEstim package and tested the fitness in the pattern of distribution of the estimated TD - R0 across the six geo - political zones in the country using the Kolmogorov - Smirnov test adjusting for Type 1 error.
