COVID-19: Chinese medical team to arrive Nigeria in days–FG
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.”
