COVID-19: We don’t know whereabouts of Chinese doctors ― FG

The Federal Government has said that it doesn’t know the whereabouts of the Chinese doctors who came to assist Nigeria in its fight against COVID-19.

This was disclosed by the Minister of Health, Ehanire Osagie, while speaking at the daily press briefing of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 in Abuja.

Ehanire said: “I want to explain first of all that I think not all of them were doctors and I heard that some of them are technicians, but they are staff of CCECC, the Ministry of health is not their host, so we can’t always explain what happened to them or where they are.

“There seems to be a lot of interests in these doctors but they are the staff of a company and I think they are on the company visa. So I will be very happy if you don’t ask me about where they are because they are not really our guests in that sense. .

“But we have been able to learn some things from them by interacting with them from their experience in their country, we shared ideas about what they did in their country in managing Covid -19.”
