Nigeria: The Lagos State Commissioner for Health Akin Abayomi has said that an Italian national employed as a consultant by Lafarge Africa was Nigeria’s ‘patient zero’ in the international coronavirus outbreak. No further cases have yet been recorded. Vanguard newspaper has reported that the consultant, who flew in to the country from Milan via Istanbul and attended a meeting in Ewekoro, Ogun State, before staying at a guesthouse there, has been confined to a treatment facility in Yaba, Lagos State. Abayomi praised the astuteness of medical staff in Yaba for isolating the patient overnight after he began to show symptoms after his second day in the country.
