The State Health Commissioner confirmed the new cases at a news briefing on Thursday.
Professor Abayomi explained that 19 people were tested on Wednesday, four out of the cases tested positive and had been isolated for treatment at the Infectious Disease Hospital, Yaba, Lagos.
He said the first of the four new cases who tested positive to the disease was a woman who had contact with the woman who came from UK some days ago who was tested positive.
According to him, the second new case was a female who returned from France on 14th of March on a Turkish airline TK 1830.
The third case, he said, was a Nigerian male in his 50s who had not travelled anywhere, but was tested positive to the disease.
The commissioner, however, said more tests were still being carried out adding that, “we have a combination of imported cases and local transmission. The Executive of Lagos State is meeting on the next stage of social distancing.
“The best way to slow the rate is to halt the movement of the virus from person to person,” he said.
“Currently, we are following over 1,300 people right now to find information about the state of their health and the number is increasing”.
