A Nigerian who returned from France three days ago is now in isolation at the Infectious Disease Centre, Yaba, the Lagos State Commissioner for Health, Prof Akin Abayomi, has revealed.
The state government is presently awaiting his result.
The commissioner who stated this at a briefing on Wednesday said the patient was referred to the Infectious Disease Hospital by a private hospital in Lagos.
He added that the result of the patient would be made public once 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.
