An Indian national who was quarantined at the Infectious Disease Hospital in Lagos state has tested negative for coronavirus.

Akin Abayomi, commissioner of health in the state, disclosed this in a tweet on Tuesday night.

“An Indian national that was admitted in our facility yesterday night with symptoms suggestive of #COVID19 has tested negative to #COVID19. Right-pointing triangleHe is doing perfectly well in our isolation unit. His case will be reviewed in the morning,” he said.

The development comes after the news broke that an Indian contractor at Dangote refinery in Lagos was transferred to the Infectious Disease Hospital after complaining of a high temperature and fever, symptoms of COVID-19.

It is unclear if the man who tested negative for the disease is the contractor at Dangote refinery.

Nigeria recorded its third case of the virus on Tuesday following the return of a 30-year-old lady from the UK. The index case, an Italian, who came into the country on February 24, is currently being treated while a Nigerian who contracted the disease through him has recovered.
