National coordinator of the presidential task force (PTF), Sani Aliyu has revealed that there were 80 positive Coronavirus cases recorded out of the 2,403 tests carried out on international travellers. 


The PTF said this on Tuesday September 29, while stressing the need for travellers to undergo another Coronavirus test seven days after arriving the country. 


Aliyu who noted that the patients arrived in the country with a negative PCR test, added that a repeat test would have been unnecessary if the country had a system of enforcement of isolation such that everybody coming into the country self-isolated effectively for two weeks.


He also directed international travellers to undergo Coronavirus tests only in private laboratories listed on the travel portal of the government.
