Three Nigerians who were recently evacuated from Dubai have tested positive for coronavirus in Lagos State.
Lagos Commissioner for Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi, made this known via his Twitter handle on Sunday.
He said, “Three of the returnees recently evacuated from Dubai have tested positive for #COVID-19 infection following #COVID19 test conducted on them.
“Those affected have been admitted to Lagos #COVID19 care centre for appropriate treatment protocols.”
The commissioner said the state government would continue to adhere strictly to the quarantine protocols.
He said the government would also continue to enforce necessary precautionary measures toward containing the spread of the COVID-19.
“I again urge Lagos residents and particularly, those who recently returned to the country to cooperate with our #COVID-19 response teams as may be desirable at all times and in all circumstances,” Abayomi said.
