A Nigerian (unnamed) has tested positive for the deadly Coronavirus in the United States of America.
This was made known by the Mayor of Washington D.C. Muriel Bowser who revealed that the Nigerian passed through the US capital city, and tested positive for coronavirus in neighbouring state of Maryland.
She announced this at a news conference on Saturday night.
She said the Nigerian had visited Washington D.C. and tested positive later in Maryland. All his contacts are being traced in the city.
Bowser had earlier announced that a man in his 50s has tested positive for coronavirus, marking the first presumptively confirmed case in the capital.
She said the man started exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 in late February and was hospitalized Thursday.
