The Italian who was first diagnosed with Covid 19 in Nigeria is now free of the virus and was, on Friday evening, allowed to leave the isolation centre of Yaba Mainland Hospital where he was quarantined and treated.
This was confirmed by the Governor of Lagos, Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
“As the COVID-19 Incident Commander for Lagos State, I am glad to inform you that the index case the Italian gentleman is now negative.
“Through a combined effort of Lagos State, Ogun State and Federal Health Authorities, we were able to limit the transmission of the virus to a single contact.
“This involved aggressive contact tracing and containment strategies. However, we now have several new imported cases and we hope we can apply the same contact tracing strategy along with social distancing to slow down the outbreak which may be brewing from these new cases.
