The first confirmed coronavirus index case in Nigeria has now tested negative for the virus, Lagos State health commissioner Akin Abayomi said on Thursday.

He was confirmed by the Virology Laboratory at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, which is part of the Laboratory Network at the Nigeria Center for Disease Control.

Abayomi, however, said the Italian will be tested once again before he will be discharged.
