BREAKING] Coronavirus: Nigerian who returned from France in isolation – Lagos

The Lagos State Commissioner for Health, Prof Akin Abayomi, has said a Nigerian who returned from France three days ago is in isolation at the Infectious Disease Centre, Yaba.

Abayomi at a briefing on Thursday said the patient was referred to the Infectious Disease Hospital by a private hospital in Lagos.

The Commissioner said the result of the patient would be released as soon as he gets it.

“He is a Nigerian who went to France, spent seven days in France, returned to Lagos three days ago and presented with headache and some respiratory symptoms. This is because he has been in a country where there is an active person-to-person transmission, it could be common cold and there is a possibility that it could be coronavirus.

“He has been put in isolation, the test is being run right now, I am expecting the result,”

Abayomi said.
