Nigerian who was second case of Coronavirus has tested negative

The Minister of Health, Osagie Ehanire, has announced that Nigeria is now Coronavirus free after the second patient, who earlier tested positive for coronavirus in Nigeria, has shed the virus and now tests negative.

The patient will reportedly be discharged soon after further observation.

He said this during a briefing with newsmen on Friday in Abuja.

He says suspected cases in Edo, Lagos, Ogun, Rivers, Kano and the FCT have all been tested.

With this development, Nigeria now has only one confirmed case of coronavirus who is currently being treated at the Infectious Disease Hospital in Yaba, Lagos.

He said the index case — an Italian — is making good progress and should be released from hospital next week.
