COVID-19: Chinese medical team to arrive Nigeria





The Federal Government says an 18-man team of Chinese medical experts, including doctors and nurses will be arriving in Nigeria in a couple of days.

The Minister of Health, Osagie Ehanire, stated this while speaking at a press briefing by the presidential task force on COVID-19 in Abuja on Friday.

Ehanire also said some Chinese companies working in Nigeria, have also donated medical supplies to support the country’s fight against coronavirus.

“I have been notified of medical supplies from China, courtesy of a group of Chinese companies working here in Nigeria. A special cargo aircraft shall leave Nigeria in a few days to collect the items which include commodities, personal protective equipment and ventilators,” he said.

“An 18-man team of Chinese medical experts including doctors, nurses and other medical advisers shall come along with the flight to assist us. I must, at this juncture commend our frontline workers who are doing a great job in case identification and management.

“As we prepare to contain COVID-19, we must not lose sight of other health challenges in our country. Routine health services must continue in our hospitals. Only a wing of tertiary health centers should be used for infected patients.”
