The Lagos State Commissioner for Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi, has said some persons suspected to have contacts with the Italian that brought coronavirus to Nigeria gave false information.

He was quoted as saying this in a press statement by the Director of Public Affairs, Ministry of Health, Tunbosun Ogunbanwo, on Monday.

According to the statement, Abayomi spoke during a stakeholders’ meeting with Chairmen of Local Governments, Community Development Associations and Medical Officers of Health of the 57 LGAs and LCDAs.

Addressing journalists after the meeting, Abayomi said the contact list of the index case of COVID-19 in Lagos is over 100 and increasing daily.

He explained that the contact being traced includes 159 passengers on the aircraft, six people who came in contact with index case at the hotel, 35 people at the factory, two drivers and an ambulance driver.

He said, “We have managed to identify all of these people except some of those people on the aircraft who have either gone back to Europe, other states or other countries or gave false information on their forms.

“We are unrelenting in our quest and we are still trying to find the remaining passengers on that aircraft; and every day, we are finding more. Our contact list now is over 100 and it is increasing every day.”

Meanwhile, the Governor of Lagos State, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, disclosed that two persons suspected and tested for Corona Virus Disease have tested negative to the infection.

“We have been testing a few suspicious cases. In fact, we tested two yesterday, they were both negative and both from Ogun State. We are very much on the lookout; our index of suspicion is very high and we have alerted all our medical facilities both public and private to be cautious about anybody who presents with fever, cough, cold, difficulty in breathing, diarrhea and body pains,” he added.

Nice one .

They are really working with the governor in search for those who had had contact with the Italian nigga without the exception of passengers in that plane.


Now, some nuisance who rant online wouldn't wanna appreciate nor even give a clap or even a nice one to the people working to make sure the disease never finds its way to their residents, but instead would critisise and display immaturity.

Can you imagine? Instead of providing quality information to the officials so they can properly tackle this and save lives, they just filled anything they like on the form and travelled out.

Some people are not worth helping

Ok

This is what a said yesterday, only a fool will give false information in this kind of situation. I gave them all correct information incase someone on my flight comes down with the virus days after landing.
But unfortunately, we have too.many dumb dumb asses who don't even understand the importance of given right information. It's for their own good.

So far so good, Lagos and Ogun State has managed it very well and Nigeria as a whole.

Kudos! Am starting to believe Nigeria has the capacity to deal with this issue. Since it will affect everybody, our politicians has sat up!

This country works when it really wants to work.

Hmm...The earlier Nigerian Government stops giving Visa to all dx Oyibos from Italy and other Asian/European countries the better for us all...

Even if they are to be given Visa..their health status should be known(They should be fully diagnosed) so as to keep Nigerians safe...Na my mind I talk Sha

Stay safe and do the right thing if you’re having symptoms. And most importantly, don’t conclude the world has come to an end, because if it really has we’ll still try to find a solution to world problems.

Lagos has actually done nothing special undecided

The much touted Infectious Disease Centre is even still under renovation.

In fact, the index patient was isolated in ward C of Mainland hospital after the patient in that ward vacated the room. (This is what they actually referred to as quarantine grin)

We saw pictures of the poor facility where the index patient was kept, the poor condition with mosquitoes and heat made him to even threaten to run away undecided

What's here to celebrate undecided
