Federal Government has confirmed the second case of coronavirus in the country.

Minister of Health, Dr Osagie Ehanire, made the revelation today at a press conference in Benin City, the Edo State capital.

Ehanire briefed reporters at the boardroom of the University of Benin Teaching Hospital, where he gave an update on the coronavirus infection in the country.

He, however, stressed that the newly confirmed case was a contact of the index case and not an importation into the country.

The victim was said to be one of those under isolation.
