1 min


Nigeria has intensified efforts to trace all persons that had contact with the Italian whose Coronavirus infection is the country’s index case.

Specifically, it has enlisted the World Health Organisation (WHO) support to reach 103 out of the 158 passengers that flew into the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos with the Italian on Feb 25.

Also yesterday, the House of Representatives members sought two weeks break to enable the management of the National Assembly put measures in place to safeguard them against the virus.

The Lagos State Government on Monday raised the alarm that it was finding it difficult tracing the passengers aboard the Turkish airliner that flew the index case into the country.
It said some of passengers had either travelled to other states in Nigeria or gone back to Europe. The government added that those contacted through the telephone.

  1. I’m amazed, I must say. Rarely do I come across
    a blog that’s equally educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the
    head. The issue is an issue that too few men and women are speaking
    intelligently about. Now i’m very happy I came across this during my search
    for something regarding this.

    Brag Reserve with 8 photos, spiral-bound soft publications for 13 photos and common towel or leatherbound
    publications for anywhere from 40 to 181 photos.
