Mr Ehanire explained that the Italian was able to get into the country without being detected at the airport because he was asymptomatic (disease was still at the incubation stage) at the time of entry.

“So, it is not that it is a failure of screening. The screening went very well. The information I have this very morning is that he is stable, so all people will not be equally severe.” This implies that the disease can be missed in a person who is yet to have symptoms and that is why WHO and the government have been advising that people who have had contacts with infected persons should be quarantined for at least 14 days.

Mr Ehanire, at a press briefing in Abuja, said they are opting for 14 days self-quarantine because much information about the nature and pattern of the disease is still unknown.

He also said health agencies in Nigeria have begun contact tracing of those who might have been in contact with the Italian.

That's fail system if they said  the Italian man enter the country and the next day he fall hill, corruption at the airport will not make them to detect him as far he was a white man or Engineer coming in , when they even see is from Milan and also the Italian airport fail too that is why they are the 3rd country that have the highest case of the virus.Meaning the Nigeria airport authority don't watch News ,they don't get update.

Story story, Nigeria is incompetent with everything. The fund assigned to buy good screening machine and construct standard isolation centre would have been diverted and cheap equipment will be used. That is Nigeria way of doing things.
