A third case of coronavirus has been confirmed in Lagos, Nigeria.
The state’s Commissioner of Health, Akin Abayomi, said this at a press briefing on Tuesday.
She is a 30-year-old- Nigerian lady and her case is “independent of the index case”.
She returned from UK on March 13 and was under self-isolation, where she developed symptoms and eventually tested positive.
This development comes days after the state government confirmed that the second case was now free of the virus.
