Here Is Why Chinese Medical Team Are Coming To Nigeria - Official


Director-General National Orientation Agency,  Garba Abari has affirmed that an 18-man Chinese medical team are coming to Nigeria to share their experience with the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control.

The Director revealed this during a programme on the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria (FRCN) in Abuja.

He debunked rumours that the Federal Government was ‘importing’ Chinese medical experts to directly take charge of the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

He added that the Chinese medical team will be coming to share their experience on how the pandemic was handled in China.

He said,

“Whatever information the Chinese medical team made available to NCDC will be filtered and applied to address the peculiar challenges of the country on handling COVID-19 scourge.

“This is a global pandemic and from wherever assistance comes, you cannot reject it.

“For instance, the United States is opening its doors to all volunteers that will come and assist them because they are also getting overwhelmed.

“Despite its fine medical facilities and expertise, US is now saying any form of assistance coming from anywhere that will add value to the fight against COVID-19 is welcome.

“It is not as if the government of Nigeria is not appreciating efforts of its own medical experts. This is the time when Nigeria is proud and appreciating its own medical experts and showcasing its best.

“This is the time that Nigeria is mopping all its competent hands, both active and inactive, and bringing them together with a view to ensure that we beef up competent human capacity required to address the issue at hand,” he said.

The Director further stressed the need for everybody to support to the fight against the novel virus.
