An Indian contractor with symptoms of Coronavirus has been identified at the Dangote Refinery, Lagos.

The PUNCH reports that the Indian who is a staff of one of Dangote’s contractors was coughing and running a high temperature on Monday.

Doctors were immediately called in and the Indian was rushed to a hospital for testing and diagnosis.
