Nigeria has not recorded any case of coronavirus, the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control has said.
The health agency in a statement on Saturday said it is aware of the circulating news of a coronavirus case in Lagos.
It, however, debunked the new as untrue saying there has been no reported or suspected case of the disease in the country as at when the statement was being issued.
The agency said the individual had truly arrived the country from China last week but he had went on a routine medical check-up as advised by his employers as soon as he got back to Nigeria.
“This individual returned from China last week and went for a routine medical check as requested by his employers. He showed no symptoms of illness and has not been diagnosed with the novel coronavirus virus”.
