Nigeria Expects Increase In Coronavirus Infections As Lagos Confirms 4 New Cases

Lagos state government has confirmed 4 new cases of Coronavirus infection.

According to the state’s Commissioner of Health, Prof Akin Abayomi, another 4 confirmed cases have increased the total cases in Nigeria to 12.

He added that out of the 19 persons tested on Wednesday, 4 tested positive.

The patients are currently in isolation at the Infectious Disease Hospital in Yaba Lagos.

According to him, the first of the four new cases was a woman in contact with another woman, who came from UK some days ago.

He added that 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.

    We lack reliable evidence on how many people have been infected with CoronalVirus or who continue to become infected. Better information is needed to guide decisions and actions of monumental significance and to monitor their impact. I still believe the data collected so far on how many people are infected and how the epidemic is evolving are utterly unreliable considering our health systems limited testing capacity. Their is certainly going to be chaos and trouble if the virus keep spreading here without any capacity to contain it on the part of the federal government. We hope they do the needful to avoid panic in the country.
