Following its inability to locate them based on information provided on their travel document, the Lagos State government has made public the names of two individuals that had contact with the Italian index case of coronavirus.
Their identities were revealed by the state Commissioner for Health Akin Abayomi during a press briefing on Monday.
Abayomi identified the concerned individuals as Enwelunta Godfrey and Salami Abiodun Sodiq.
He urged the media to assist the government in locating the two men who were on the same flight with the Italian.
According to him, the state decided to make the names public due to the government’s inability to trace them based on the contact information they gave when boarding the plane.
This comes after the Minister of Health, Dr Osagie Ehanire, announced the second case of coronavirus while briefing reporters in Benin City, the Edo State capital.
He noted that the newly confirmed case was a contact of the index case and not an importation into the country.
