Coronavirus in Nigeria

Hopes that the coronavirus would be contained to China have vanished as the first case in sub-Saharan Africa has been confirmed in Nigeria.

The case, which was confirmed on the 27th of February 2020, is the first case to be reported in Nigeria since the beginning of the outbreak in China in January 2020.

According to the NCDC, the patient is clinically stable and is being managed at the Infectious Disease Hospital Yaba.

The Federal Ministry of Health is currently working to identify all the contacts of the patient since he entered Nigeria.
