Health Minister, Dr. Osagie Ehanire has come out to say that the chances that the Nigerian man who was diagnosed of Coronavirus in the United States got the virus in our country are very low.

Osagie revealed that the man was in Lagos in February 2020, and that was when the country’s first coronavirus index patient visited from Italy.

According to him, the timelines between the time the Egyptian patient came to the nation and when he became sick proves the possibility that he was infected in Lagos State are not high at all.

He added that The Federal Ministry of Heath promises to do everything possible to contain the spread of the virus in Nigeria.

His words, “On the case reported in the US of Nigerian origin, we are in touch with colleagues at the US Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta and here in Abuja. The case visited Lagos in February 2020,”

“The Federal Ministry of Heath, and Lagos and Ogun States Health Ministries assure citizens of our commitment to do all needed to control spread of this outbreak. Since the first case was confirmed in Nigeria on 27th of February 2020, the National Emergency Operations Centres (EOC) in Abuja, continues to work closely with Lagos and Ogun State EOCs to coordinate response activities.

“I again strongly advise against spreading misinformation to cause fear and panic. The Federal Ministry of Health and NCDC will continue to provide prompt and reliable updates and initiate all measures required to protect our people.”
