Covid-19: FG Retests Chinese Medic Experts Today



After spending 14 days in isolation as recommended by Nigeria Centre For Disease Control (NCDC), Nigeria Minister of Health, Osagie Ehanire, says the team of 15 Chinese medical experts who arrived Abuja on April 8 will undergo another COVID-19 test today.

It would be recalled that the Chinese medical experts came to Nigeria with equipment worth $1.5m with the aim of supporting their Nigerian counterpart to end covid-19 in Nigeria.

Speaking in Abuja Wednesday at a briefing of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, Ehanire said: “I’ve ordered for the tests swap for COVID-19 to be done tomorrow (Thursday) and the test will be done for us to finalize if any of them has any infection.”

He also warned that patent and proprietary medicine vendors and pharmacists would be forthwith prohibited from attempting to treat persons diagnosed as or suspected to be COVID-19 patients or have their operating licences cancelled.

Ehanire said henceforth, all persons diagnosed with the COVID-19 should be treated in the state where the diagnosis was made rather than be referred to their states of origin “except there is a medical indication to the contrary. This is to avoid the high risk of exposure of other persons in the course of transfer.”
