The three suspected cases were individuals from England, France and China. Their samples were taken for analysis and were returned negative.
Prof Akin Abayomi via his verified twitter handle had announced on Friday, that all three suspected cases of the Coronavirus have turned out negative and the suspects discharged from the infectious Disease Hospital in Yaba, Lagos Nigeria.
Health Authorities in Nigeria have encouraged Nigerians not to panic, but to practice the habit of personal hygeine by washing their hands frequently and sneezing or coughing into a disposable towel or handkerchief.
Authorities are of the opinion that there is no need to panic, and no need to close churches or schools. They also warned that this is not the time for unnecessary handshakes or hugs.
Nigeria has so far confirmed only one case of the Coronavirus, in an Italian expatriate who arrived the country from Milan last month.
However, the individual in question is currently responding to treatment.
So far more than 80.000 people currently have the covid-19 in the 50 Countries affected and more than 2 800 deaths have been recorded so far since the disease outbreak from China.
However various health checks have been mounted at the immigration points such as temperature checks etc to check travellers coming in to Nigeria, from the affected countries.
Passengers arriving in Nigeria who have traveled to China in the last two months or to an area with active COVID-19 cases are requested to voluntarily self-quarantine for 14 days and to report any symptoms to the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC)
