Turkish Airlines said on Tuesday that it has suspended all flights to-and-from Nigeria due to the Coronavirus epidemic.

The PUNCH reports that Nigeria’s first index case of the novel COVID-19, a passenger of Italian origin, arrived at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos, via Turkish Airlines.

The government launched a search for the other passengers on the flight with the Italian, who is currently in isolation in Lagos, and released the names of the missing passengers.
