One new COVID-19 case was confirmed by the Nigerian Center of Disease Control in Lagos, Nigeria, on Tuesday, the first  since the previous two cases had been cured.

The patient, a 30-year-old Nigerian woman, arrived in Lagos via British Airways BA75 from xxx at 18:00 on March 13. She developed symptoms during a self-quarantine and tested positive. She is in stable condition being treated at an infectious diseases hospital in Lagos.

The first patient, an Italian, was confirmed with COVID-19 on February 28, and the second was a Nigerian who had close contact with the Italian. Last week both of them recovered and were discharged.
