Not more than 28 persons have been reportedly been identified and kept in isolation in Ogun State for the fear of the spread of the deadly coronavirus.
Information Nigeria recalls the first case of the virus was recorded in Lagos state.
The Ogun state Commissioner for Health, Tomi Coker, also confirmed that the Italian man, who tested positive for Coronavirus in Lagos on Thursday, had also visited Ewekoro in Ewekoro Local Government Area of Ogun State earlier this week.
The man is said to have come in contact with some of the employees of Lafarge.
According to SaharaReporters, the government has since shut down the cement factory the man visited in Ewekoro and quarantined several of its employees to avoid a spread of the deadly virus.
