Some infected persons are hiding, says Nigerian health minister

Osagie Ehanire, minister of health, says some persons who have contracted coronavirus are hiding.

The minister said this at a press conference in Abuja on Monday.

He said the federal government has to act fast to tackle the spread of the virus in order not to experience a similar challenge with China and Italy – the worst hit countries in the coronavirus pandemic.

While China has recorded 81,093 cases with 3,270 deaths, Italy has recorded 63,937 cases with 6,077 deaths, according to Worldometer, a website that provides update on the virus casualty figures globally.

Ehanire said the country’s index case, an Italian man, had contact with 179 persons, adding that one of the persons had tested positive.

But both the Italian and the contact have recovered from the disease.

Enahire said the closure of the airports for international flights will stop the record of fresh cases in the country.
