Index Case Will Be Discharged After Second Negative Test – Health Minister
The Minister of Health, Dr. Osagie Ehanire, has said that Nigeria’s first case, an Italian man who recently tested negative of Covid-19 will be discharged after a second negative test.
The Italian has been on quarantine and receiving treatment since he was discovered to have contracted the virus in late February.
Dr. Ehanire made the announcement at a briefing in Abuja on Friday.
He said that so far Nigeria has recorded a total of 12 cases, nine out of the cases are from Lagos.
