The Chinese national who presented at the Reddington Hospital, Ikeja @reddingtonlagos yesterday was isolated at Mainland Infectious Disease Hospital and his sample was obtained for analysis which turned out negative for #COVID19.
As of today 27. 02.2020 Lagos has no suspected or confirmed case of #COVID19
I urge the public to disregard any news that does not emanate from Lagos State Government or Lagos State Ministry of Health official communication channels.
I hereby reassure Lagosians that we are putting necessary measures in place to safe guard Lagos state from the importation of #COVID19
Lagos State Government and Lagos State Ministry of Health will continue to monitor the outbreak of #COVID19 globally and will inform the public of any reported case.
