Nigeria records 3rd Coronavirus case through British Airways

The Lagos state government has confirmed a third case of coronavirus in the state.

Akin Abayomi, the state’s commissioner of health, disclosed this at a press conference, on Tuesday.

This development comes days after the state government confirmed that the second case was now free of the virus.

The affected person is a 30-year-old Nigerian lady, who returned from the United Kingdom on March 13.

The Ministry of Health said she is now at Mainland General Hospital receiving treatment.

Abayomi said passengers on the same flight with the UK-returnee should stay at home and self-isolate themselves for 14 days.

“Contact tracing of all passengers and all those who may have come in contact with this latest case has commenced,” he said.
