Coronavirus: Six-Week Old Baby Becomes Youngest Nigerian Infected

A six-week old baby has become the youngest Nigerian, to test positive to the coronavirus.

This was confirmed by President Muhammadu Buhari’s Special Assistant on New Media, Tolu Ogunlesi, via his verified Twitter page.

Five new cases confirmed by the Federal Ministry of Health on Wednesday.

Giving a break down of that number, Ogunlesi said “3 arrived from the US (2 of them Nigerians, a mother and her 6-week old baby), 2 arrived from the UK (both Nigerians)

“4 of them Nigerians (one a 6-week old baby – youngest victim so far), fifth one a foreign national who came in through the land border, the first case of infection via land border in Nigeria.”

Four of the patients are in Lagos, while one is in Ekiti state.

According to him, “all are being followed up and supported by State Health Authorities and The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC)”.
