Lagos — Lagos State Commissioner for Health, Akin Abayomi, says six persons are being currently quarantined in the state for coronavirus.
He said they included four siblings, a teacher and another person who flew into the country from United Kingdom.
He said they had contact with a coronavirus case which warranted that they were tested to ascertain their status.
He said they were quarantined two days ago, adding that a first test had been conducted on them and the result indicated negative.
The commissioner was speaking after two passengers on the Turkish airlines with the Italian COVID-19 patient, Emweluta Godfrey Obumnore and Salami Abiodun Sadeeq, were found two days after disclosing their names.
They were placed under watch list to prevent them from spreading the disease, he said.
