Chinese Embassy Gives Update On Whereabouts Of Chinese Doctors In Nigeria

Nigerian Minister of Health, Dr. Osagie Enhaire has revealed that the 15 Chinese medical doctors in Nigeria will be tested today to ascertain their Coronavirus (COVID-19) status.

Naija News recalls that they had flown in with medical equipment worth about $1.5million, through the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, on April 8, 2020.

Nigerians, including the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) had criticized the move by the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19.Nigeria’s Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, were forced to debunk reports that one of the Chinese doctors had tested positive for the COVID-19.

However, the Health Minister Dr. Osagie Ehanire, who dropped the hint during the daily briefing of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 in Abuja, said: “I was reminded that the people who came from China had spent 14 days in quarantine and I ordered that the test be done. The COVID-19 test swabs are to be taken tomorrow and the test will be done to finalise if any of them has any infection.”
