The visiting 15-member medical team from China will arrive the country today.
The Chinese team’s arrival happens despite opposition from the Nigeria Medical Association. They will land at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja.
The envoy consists of experts in infectious diseases, respiratory illness, intensive care, cardiology, neurology, general surgery, and anesthesiology.
They will be coming with their drugs and equipment to carry out coronavirus tests on the staff of the China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation in the country.
Jacques Liao, Executive Director, CCEC, stated that the Chinese medical team would arrive with 16-ton test kits, ventilators, disinfection machine, disposable medical masks, drugs, infrared thermometer and other items requested by the federal government.
Liao dismissed what he referred to as the controversy about the team’s visit, saying that their main purpose was to provide CECC employees with critical and necessary healthcare.
“All members of the working team have tested negative for COVID-19 and shall commence their stay in Nigeria by spending 14 days in quarantine.
“The primary purpose of the team is to provide CCECC employees with critical and necessary health care assistance. They are also coming with adequate personal protective equipment and medical items for the employees.”
