Mother, baby, three others test positive of Coronavirus in Nigeria

Coronavirus cases in Nigeria on Wednesday increased from three to eight fuelling fears of the epidemic of the disease in the country.

The Minister of Health, Dr Osagie Ehanire,  at a press conference in Abuja, said four of the five new cases were in Lagos State, while one was in Ekiti State.

Ehanire said this just as Lagos and Ogun state governments banned gatherings of over 50 people.

It was gathered that the American, who infected the Ekiti case with the virus, might have died of the disease.

But the state government said the American died of complications as test conducted on him was inconclusive.

Coronavirus was first recorded in Nigeria on February 27 when an Italian businessman, who was on a visit to Lafarge Africa Plc, Ewekoro, Ogun State, was diagnosed with the disease and taken to Lagos State, where he is currently being treated.

The second coronavirus case was a Nigerian, who had contact with the Italian and was isolated in Ogun State. Although he tested positive twice, subsequent tests were negative.

On Tuesday, the Federal Government said a 30-year-old woman, who returned to the country on Friday from the United Kingdom, was diagnosed with coronavirus.
