The Lagos state Government says four persons have tested positive for the Coronavirus in the state.
This brings the total number of confirmed cases to 12 in Nigeria.
The Lagos state Commissioner for Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi, disclosed this on Thursday, saying that the government was currently following up over 1,300 contact cases.
Abayomi explained that 19 persons were tested on Wednesday with four testing positive.
The positive persons, he said, had been isolated for treatment at the Infectious Disease Hospital, Yaba, Lagos.
He said the first of the four new cases was a woman in contact with another woman, who came from UK some days ago.
According to him, the second new case was a female who returned from France on March 14 on a Turkish airline TK 1830.
The third case, the commissioner said, was a Nigerian male in his 50s, who had not travelled anywhere but tested positive.
Abayomi stated that the fourth case was a Nigerian male, who arrived on March 13 from Frankfurt to Lagos on Lufthansa airline, flight number LH568.
The commissioner, however, said more tests were still being carried out, appealing to people on the two flights to self-isolate themselves and reach the government.
“Currently, we are following over 1,300 people right now to find information about the state of their health and the number is increasing,” Abayomi stated.
