The Italian, whose country is the worst-hit in Europe by the coronavirus outbreak, arrived on February 24 on a Turkish Airlines flight that had a connection in Istanbul, Lagos state commissioner for health, Akin Abayomi, told reporters.

After spending the night in a hotel near the airport, he arrived in the neighbouring state of Ogun on February 25 at his place of work. 

Abayomi said, he stayed there until he developed a fever and body aches on the afternoon of February 26.

Health practitioners with his company then contacted biosecurity authorities, who transferred him to a containment facility in Yaba, Lagos state.

“It was very astute of the medical practitioners in that facility to keep him overnight in an isolated environment,” Abayomi said.

Minister of Health, Osagie Ehanire said the infection was confirmed on February 27 by the Virology Laboratory of the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, part of the Laboratory Network of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, and that “the man is now quarantined but doing well.”
