Chinese COVID-19 medical team arrives Nigeria

A 15-member Chinese medical team arrived in Nigeria Wednesday afternoon.

The team which was flown on an aircraft operated by Air Peace arrived at the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja, at 5: 17 p.m.

The team was received by the Chinese Ambassador to Nigeria, Dr. Zhou Pingjian; Executive Director, China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation (CCECC), Mr. Jacques Liao and senior officials of the Ministries of Foreign Affairs and Health amongst others.

Nigerians have publicly condemned the Federal Government’s decision to invite the Chinese doctors to help tackle the coronavirus pandemic.

Also, the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) on Monday rejected the invitation of the Chinese doctors, saying the government has displayed total disrespect for the Nigerian health workers who are in the frontline of the country’s quest to tackle the pandemic.
