Lagos state health officials diagnosed a second patient with the China coronavirus — a Nigerian man who returned from France with the infection.

Akin Abayomi, Lagos State Commissioner for Health said the new patient, on Wednesday was referred to the Infectious Disease Hospital by a private hospital in Lagos.

“He is a Nigerian who went to France, spent seven days in France, returned to Lagos three days ago and presented with headache and some respiratory symptoms. This is because he has been in a country where there is an active person-to-person transmission, it could be common cold and there is a possibility that it could be coronavirus.

“He has been put in isolation, the test is being run right now, I am expecting the result,”

Previously there were suspected cases being monitored in Nigeria and they all tested negative.
