The Lagos State Commissioner for Health, Prof Akin Abayomi, has disclosed that a Nigerian who returned from France some days ago has been placed in isolation at the Infectious Disease Centre, Yaba.
Abayomi revealed on Wednesday that the patient was referred to the Infectious Disease Hospital by a private hospital in Lagos.
Here is the briefing below:
“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,” he said.
