“They were actually two but one tested negative,” Ehanire said.

He stated that the National Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) led by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) and supported by partners, is supporting response in the states while the Federal Government through Federal Ministry of Health is conducting a risk assessment to guide the government in decision making.

The minister also noted that Nigeria is at a stage of importation of disease that is coming as single cases “…we are not in a stage of community transmission where it is becoming widespread and is focused on contact tracing to ensure there is no gap and that it does not get to the level community transmission. We will also inform the airline that brought the affected persons and the country as well as the World Health Organization (WHO).”
