Nigeria has become the latest country to report a case of the deadly coronavirus. As would be expected Nigerians did not take long to react and while some made humorous jokes, others were a bit more concerned.
An Italian returned to Nigeria from Milan with the virus and is currently on treatment at a facility in Yaba.
See reactions from Nigerians on Twitter;
I can't be looking for how to eat 3times a day and still be looking for how to protect myself from contacting this virus..

It has finally happened! 🥺 What is an Italian doing in Nigeria for God's sake? He came 25th and got sick 26th?
What about those on the plane he boarded and those he had had contacts with?

CNN just reported Nigeria has confirmed its first case of corona virus, best thing to do rn is the Lagos government declaring a state of emergency to try contain this, track down everyone that was on that flight and quarantine ‘em.#CoronaVirusUpdates #coronavirusnigeria

Taking my glasses off so that I can understand what's really going on to know if it's through window I'll escape or the door when someone coughs more than 4 times in a bus 😂 #coronavirusnigeria pic.twitter.com/zmzFdBVvRz
