The Nigerian Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) says three new cases of coronavirus have been confirmed in Lagos.

According to a tweet shared on the NCDC handle on Sunday, the cases had a history of travelling to high-risk countries in the last seven days.

This brings the total number of confirmed Covid-19 cases in the country to 26 as at 8:05am on Sunday.

This is including the case announced by Seyi Makinde, the governor of Oyo state, on Saturday night.

Two patients have been discharged since cases of the disease were confirmed in Nigeria.

There are 19 patients in Lagos; one in Ekiti; two in Ogun, and three in the federal capital territory (FCT).

“The COVID-19 confirmation test for the suspected case at Bodija has come back POSITIVE. The result was released at 17:35 PM of March 21, 2020,” Makinde had said.

“Another returnee from Texas, USA, has also been identified at Oluyole local government area. She has been kept in self-isolation with close monitoring by the state epidemiological team. All recent returnees are again urged to identify themselves to ministry officials and self-isolate for 14 days.”

The agency urged anyone who returned to Nigeria from any country in the last 14 days to embark on self-isolation.
