The third case was a man who had not been abroad but tested positive to the virus. He is in his 50s, while the fourth person is a man who came to Lagos from Frankfurt on the 13th of March via a Lufthansa flight.

While Nigerians are also urged to remain calm, a hotline has already been made available for reporting cases.
