He said 19 tests were performed on suspected cases and contacts of the five cases announced on Wednesday, out of which four turned positive.


The first positive test is that of a Nigerian female who returned from France via a Turkish airline (TK 1830) on March 14.


Another confirmed case is a Nigerian male in his 50s who had never travelled anywhere. He tested positive and had since been admitted.
