The Minister stated this during the daily briefing of the Presidential Task Force on Thursday.

Ehanire said he wondered why there was so much interest about the Chinese doctors and asked journalists not to ask him the question again.

The coming of the Chinese health workers has been met with scorn by the Nigerian Mediacl Association and the National Association of Nigeria Nurses and Midwives.

Speaking during the briefing, Dr Ehanire said: “The other one is about the Chinese doctors. I think not all of them are doctors, some of them are technicians, but they are staff of CCECC. The Ministry of Health is not their host, so we cannot always explain what happens to them or where they are.

“There seems to be a lot of interests in these doctors, but they are 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.”

However, the minister said, “We have been able to learn some things from them by interacting with them from their experience in their country. They did tell us, and we shared ideas about what they did in their country, how they are managing COVID-19.”
