The Nigerian Government, on Friday, said an individual who tested positive for coronavirus (which was Nigeria’s second confirmed case) no longer had the virus in his system and would be discharged from the treatment centre in Lagos.
Nigeria’s Minister of Health, Dr Osagie Ehanire, said this while giving an update on the virus in Abuja.
He said the person, who had contact with the index case, had no symptoms of COVID-19, adding that he had not been sick while in isolation.
He also said the index case, an Italian who is receiving treatment in Lagos, would also be discharged next week.
“Between January 7 and March 12, 2020, a total of 42 people who met our case definition have been screened for COVID-19 in Edo, Lagos, Ogun, Yobe, Rivers and Kano states, and the Federal Capital Territory. Forty tested negative and two were confirmed positive. These two are the index case. No death has been recorded,” He said.
