Three Nigerians who were recently evacuated from Dubai, United Arab Emirates back home, have tested positive for the coronavirus.
The Lagos State Commissioner for Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi, stated this on Twitter.
“3 of the returnees recently evacuated from Dubai have tested positive for COVID-19 infection following COVID-19 test conducted on them.
“Those affected have been admitted to Lagos COVID-19 care centre for appropriate treatment protocols.
“LSMOH will continue to adhere strictly to quarantine protocols and enforce necessary precautionary measures so as to contain the spread of COVID-19 infection,” he wrote.
The returnees arrived in the country through the Murtala Muhammed International Airport on May 6 and were immediately isolated in different hotels in Lagos.
The commissioner had a face-off with the Nigerians when he announced that they would all be tested for the virus, as they protested that they were not receiving good treatment and welfare.
They also protested that one of them who died from surgical complications, was being wrongly tagged a COVID-19 patient by government.
