Another Case Of Coronavirus Confirmed In Lagos


The Lagos State Ministry of Health has confirmed another case of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in Lagos.

This is the third case of the virus in Nigeria and the Lagos State Ministry of Health broke the news on Tuesday on its Twitter page.

The ministry explained that the case was that of a 30-year-old Nigerian female who returned from the United Kingdom on March 13, observed self-isolation and developed symptoms, thereby testing positive. The patient is receiving treatment at the Infectious Disease Hospital, Yaba, and contacts are being made to all passengers on board and all those who may have come in contact with this latest case, but hope to have few quarantined because the lady went into self-isolation immediately she returned from the UK.

The Minister of Health Osagie Ehanire, confirmed the case during a press briefing in Abuja the nation’s capital. He said he will provide an update on if flight would be ban or not or impose other strict measures after the inter-ministerial meeting with the SGF.
