Lagos State Government Sunday said an American and a Briton were among three new persons who tested positive for coronavirus in the state.

The 51-year-old Briton flew into Nigerian on March 8 aboard via BA75 flight. The American is a 65-year-old individual who arrived in the country six weeks ago.

The Nigerian among the new confirmed cases was on a connecting flight KL0582 London-Amsterdam / KL0587 Amsterdam – Lagos

Lagos State commissioner for health Akin Abayomi had earlier advised those who came into Nigeria on flights BA75 and KLM0587 that they “have been exposed to confirmed COVID-19 case.”

The state has now recorded 19 cases of coronavirus. Two of the patients – including the first index case – have been discharged after reaching full recovery.
