Nigeria’s first confirmed case of Covid-19, an Italian on a business trip, has now tested negative for the virus, the Lagos state government said on Thursday.

The Italian has been on quarantine and receiving treatment since he was discovered to have contracted the virus in late February.

The news of his recovery was announced by the Lagos state commissioner for health, Professor Akin Abayomi during a press conference.

Abayomi said the Italian will be released after another negative result.
