Federal Capital Territory, Abuja now has confirmed cases of covid-19 as three suspected cases tested positive for coronavirus.
One of the passengers on the British Airways’ flight works with the FIRS and he is among those who tested positive. His wife tested negative. We are hoping that all biometric sign-in at the FIRS headquarters in Wuse Zone 5 stops with immediate effect.”
A top source at the Federal Ministry of Health told newsmen that the case had been reported to the ministry.
He, however, said the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control would do its own testing before the public would be notified.
The official said, “Yes, we were notified on Friday about three cases by a hospital in Abuja. We are doing our own round of testing because we cannot rely on their own result and we don’t want to cause panic among Nigerians.
