The Lagos State Government says report of a suspected case of Coronavirus at a Chinese residence in Gowon Estate in the Alimosho Local Government Area of the state is false.
The State’s Commissioner for Health, Prof Akin Abayomi, in a statement, said upon getting the report, the Surveillance and Biosecurity Unit of the state’s Ministry of Health commissioned a search party to investigate the matter.
Abayomi said the so-called Osoba Close or Street where the Chinese national alleged to have coronavirus live on was not found in Gowon Estate.
The commissioner said the ministry has already increased surveillance on hotels and other resort centres in Lagos.
