The Embassy Said The Chinese Doctors Are Still In Nigeria To Save Lives Against COVID-19


China’s embassy said that the Chinese Doctors sent to Nigeria to help fight against the spread of COVID-19 are still in the country (Nigeria).

Sun Saixiong, a china embassy spokesman, in a statement on Sunday, May 17 said that 15 doctors are still in Nigeria and are working very hard to curb the spread of the deadly disease.

He added that they are not just working on their own but working with the Nigerian health agencies to save the lives of the citizens of Nigeria.

Saixiong said: “The Embassy of China is not directly involved in what the medics do on a daily basis but we have always been supportive of our companies to fulfill their social responsibilities in Nigeria and we do appreciate their collaboration with their Nigerian brothers and sisters.

“We are aware also that the medics have completed their quarantine period in a cooperative and respectful manner strictly prescribed by the Nigerian Health authorities and manner to help contain the pandemic in the country…”

Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that following the completion of their mandatory 14-day quarantine, the 15-man Chinese medical team brought to Nigeria to fight Covid-19 tested negative to the pandemic.

Osagie Ehanire, the minister of health, who made this known on Tuesday, April 28, said the Chinese medical expert can now proceed on the assignment that brought them to the country.

In a related post, Legit.ng reported that Ehanire had said that he did not know the whereabouts of the Chinese medical team who were reportedly brought to Nigeria to help the country fight the COVID-19 pandemic.

Ehanire speaking at the daily briefing of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 in Abuja on Thursday, May 14, asked Nigerians to stop asking him about the whereabouts of the health professionals.

The minister said the health ministry cannot give details about the Chinese health professionals because the ministry is not hosting them.

Ehanire, however, stated that the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 has been able to learn some things from the Chinese medical team by interacting with them from their experience in their country.

He said.  “The ministry of health is not their host. So, we cannot always explain what happened to them or where they are. There seems to be a lot of interest in these doctors but they are the staff of the company and I think they are on the company visa.”
