Amidst the confirmation of the third case of Covid-19, Lagos state government in conjunction with the federal government has called on all passengers on board British Airways flight 75 that arrived Lagos state on March 13th, to isolate themselves now following the confirmation of the 3rd case of Coronavirus in Nigeria.
