5 US returnees tested for Coronavirus in Lagos
The US returnees were said to have had close contact with someone infected with Coronavirus.
The commissioner said prior to their arrival in the country, the siblings and their teacher had close contact with someone infected with the virus.
“A family of four children and their teacher who came in from the United States and were in close proximity with someone infected with #COVID19 have tested negative,” he tweeted.
Nigeria recorded her first Coronavirus case since the outbreak began in China, late February.
The first case was discovered when an Italian businessman landed in Lagos, the country's most populous city.
Barely a week after the discovery of the first case, a second case of the deadly disease was recorded.
The new coronavirus case made contact with the Italian businessman who was first diagnosed, on a Turkish Airlines flight.
