A Nigerian, who returned from the United Kingdom last Friday, has tested positive for the new coronavirus, Lagos State Ministry of Health said on Tuesday.
“She is clinically stable and is being treated at the Infectious Disease Hospital, Lagos,” Nigeria’s health minister Dr Osagie Ehanire said.
Lagos State health ministry said the patient, a 30-year-old Nigerian female, observed self-isolation, developed symptoms and tested positive for the coronavirus.
Already, the Nigerian Government has started tracing those on the same flight with the unnamed patient. Ehanire said he expected the number to be minimal “because of her sensible decision to go into self-isolation from the time of her arrival.” (Text courtesy Guardian)
