President Muhammadu Buhari-led government has revealed that the Coronavirus test results of the 15-man Chinese medical team that flew into Nigeria a few weeks ago are not ready.
The development was revealed by the Minister of State for Health, Adeleke Mamora, during the daily briefing of the Presidential Task Force in Abuja on Friday.
The Chinese medical team which flew into Nigeria to offer technical support in the fight against COVID-19 completed their mandatory 14-day quarantine on Wednesday.
Their samples were then taken for testing by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).
“For one reason or the other, we do not have the test results of the Chinese yet. I want to assure you that once we have the result of the tests, we will inform the country about the development.”
“I will advise all Nigerians to be patient because the government is also anticipating the result of the tests to ensure that we protect the health and wellbeing of every citizen of the country.”
