Three Nigerians, who are part of the recent Dubai returnees, have tested positive to Coronavirus in Lagos.

The returnees have been observing the 14-day mandatory isolation in hotels at Lekki and Ikeja.

The Federal Government had on May 6, evacuated 256 Nigerians from Dubai amid the Coronavirus pandemic.

The Lagos State Commissioner for Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi, who made this known on Sunday through his Twitter account, said that those affected had been admitted to the State’s Covid-19 care centre for appropriate treatment protocols.

Prof. Abayomi explained that Lagos 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.
