Three Nigerian returnees from Dubai test positive to COVID-19 ― LASG

The Lagos State government on Sunday revealed that three of the Nigerians evacuated from Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE), by the Federal Government have tested positive to the novel COVID-19 in the state.

The State Commissioner for Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi, made this known on his Twitter handle, saying that the three returnees, who were stranded in Dubai before their evacuation, had since been placed under isolation and being attended to by health officials, to prevent further spread of the deadly disease.
