A Nigerian man who claims he is the Uber driver that picked up the Italian man who became the first Coronavirus case in Nigeria, has cried out for help.

Many are reacting to this new information even as the ministry of health stated that they were working on identifying everyone who was in contact with the patient with the help of the State Emergency Operations Centre to respond to and implement firm control measures.
