10

In their bid to prevent the spread of Coronavirus, Lagos and Ogun State governments have identified at least 100 people, who had contact with a 44-year-old Italian, who’s the first patient of the disease in Nigeria.

The Italian who works for a vendor that provides services to Lafarge Africa Plc, a cement manufacturing company at Ewekoro, Ogun state reportedly came into the country on Monday, February 24, 2020.

On his arrival, the Italian was said to have spent the night in a hotel around the airport before leaving for Ewekoro on Tuesday morning.

The 44-year-old man, however, tested positive for the virus after falling ill and was thereafter taken to the Infectious Disease Hospital in Yaba, Lagos.

Following the index case, Ogun state government shut down Lafarge cement plant and quarantined 28 people believed to have had contact with the Italian.

In an interview with Channels TV on Saturday, February 29, Lagos State Commissioner for Health, Prof Akin Abayomi said over 100 persons who had contact with the Coronavirus patient had been identified.

“By Saturday, his symptoms had subsided. He hasn’t developed any respiratory symptoms and we are quite happy about that because if he has respiratory symptoms like coughing and sneezing, it makes the disease more contagious,” he said.

In another interview with Arise TV, Abayomi said the hotel room, where the Italian patient lodged on Monday night has been identified.

“We’re going there this morning (Saturday) to decontaminate the room and the entire hotel. We will identify all the people who had contact with him in the hotel,” he said.

He said the Chinese nationals were in the state for mining activities.

Corroborating Ndam, Plateau commissioner for information, Dan Manjang while confirming the development said the Chinese arrived Abuja on Friday and headed for Jos on the same day.
