Dangote Refinery’s Indian Staff Tests Positive To Coronavirus


Just as the nation is about heaving a sigh of relief over the second Coronavirus victim who recently tested negative to the dreaded disease, a new case has again reared its head in Lagos.

The new suspect, Jaynath Kumar, an Indian, was detected Monday of having high temperature 38.5c, dry cough, sore throat and difficulty in breathing, which are symptoms of the Coronavirus.

Kumar, an employee of Dangote Refinery with staff number 0-62178, was said to have arrived Nigeria from India last Thursday (12-03-2020) before he was discovered of the symptoms on Monday.

The suspect with passport number: M8869527, boarded from Mumbai, India via Cairo, Egypt, it was gathered, has now been isolated at Block 21, Room 5, A158, Dangote Refinery Camp, Lekki, Freezone, Lagos, Nigeria.

Kumar, an Assistant Pipe Fitter with Dangote Refinery, was said to have by himself visited Dangote clinic for treatment yesterday, ostensibly when his ailment became unbearable.

Kumar’s case is the most difficult of the three cases so far recorded, having stayed five days undetected and mixing with people.
