Nigeria has just announced three new cases of coronavirus in Lagos, a densely populated commercial hub.
“Three new cases of #COVID19 have been confirmed in Nigeria. All 3 cases were reported in Lagos State and have travel history to high-risk countries in the last 7 days,” the Nigeria Center for Disease Control (NCDC) says.
We’re working closely with the Lagos State Ministry of Health to identify and follow up with contacts. If you‘ve returned to Nigeria from any country in the last 14 days, please stay in self-isolation.”
Two of the 26 have recovered and have been discharged.
