The suspected coronavirus case who was quarantined in Enugu has tested negative for the disease, the Nigerian Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) reports.
The agency made this known in a tweet on its Twitter handle on Sunday, although it had earlier said that the patient’s result would be available on Monday.
“The laboratory result of the patient in Enugu suspected to have #COVID19 is NEGATIVE. It is important to wait for confirmation from NCDC before spreading information on social media. NCDC will continue to provide updates to the public,” the tweet read.
