Tension: We are expecting a medical team from China on COVID-19, says FG

He also said a group of Chinese companies working in Nigeria have donated medical supplies to support the country’s fight against COVID-19.

The federal government says a medical team from China will arrive the country in a few days.

Osagie Enahire, minister of health, broke the news at the presidential task force on COVID-19 briefing in Abuja on Friday.

He also said a group of Chinese companies working in Nigeria have donated medical supplies to support the country’s fight against COVID-19.

He said the items include commodities such as personal protective equipment and ventilators.

“I have been notified of medical supplies from China, courtesy of a group of Chinese companies working here in Nigeria. A special cargo aircraft shall leave Nigeria in a few days to collect the items which include commodities, personal protective equipment and ventilators,” he said.

“An 18-man team of Chinese medical experts including doctors, nurses and other medical advisers shall come along with the flight to assist us. I must at this juncture commend our frontline workers who are doing a great job in case identification and management.

“As we prepare to contain COVID-19, we must not lose sight of other health challenges in our country. Routine health service must continue in our hospitals. Only a wing of tertiary health centres should be used for infected patients.”

The minister said nearly 3,000 samples have been tested for the disease, adding that Nigeria will witness an increase in confirmed coronavirus cases despite the lockdown.

Nigeria has recorded 190 confirmed cases out of which Lagos state, which is the epicentre of the disease, has 98 cases.

The federal capital territory (FCT) has 38; Osun, 20, and Oyo, eight cases. Akwa Ibom state has five cases; Ogun and Edo states have four each; Kaduna, four; Bauchi, three.

Enugu and Ekiti states have two cases each while Rivers and Benue states have recorded one each.

In Africa, over 7,000 cases have been recorded with 284 deaths spread across 50 countries.

Globally, the confirmed cases hit one million on Thursday, with at least 51, 300 people dead from complications of the disease.

The infection has spread to 204 countries and territories since the first case was recorded in Wuhan, China, late December.

On March 24, Jack Ma, co-founder of Alibaba, Chinese e-commerce company, donated medical kits for Nigeria to fight coronavirus pandemic.

        It is an avenue for them to steal enough money because if you are expecting doctors from China the following will happen within the greedy politicians
        *Rent houses for them at a very high rate
        *Pay allowances each day for each doctor
        *Buy them exotic cars etc…
        Are they better than Nigeria Doctors
        APC GOVERNMENT IS A SCAM

    They should leave us alone please. How many cases do we have that they’re so bent on coming to help us? As far as I’m concerned, Nigeria is doing great in less than two weeks they’ve been able to treat and discharged over 20 people and billionaires are helping why are we still seeking help from China? Na wao may God help us.

    Nigerian Government should NOT BRING CHINESE “experts” to Nigeria for Covid 19.

    Nigerian Health workers are doing great, and even being commended by WHO & Other Nations, for the way we are handling the Covid19 cases (even using\recommending our Methods of management to others).

    Nigeria healthcare workers are the best world all over…with or without the right equipments!

    Seems the “governing” have completely lost touch with the State of Nigerian institutions, (esp. the Healthcare facilities -with perpetual gross neglect).

    Why, because the “rulers” always get treatment abroad, hence the local facilities are in sorry state. They are afraid to now “use the healthcare facilities” they never put in place.
    Or is it their way to fly in your “medical tourism experts”, that the current global lockdown does not allow you to go (as usual), abroad for your treatments?

    By the way how many cases do we even have in Nigeria self, to warrant emergency importation of “Chinese experts”..?
    We don’t need you to come and bring in more cases please.

    Thank God for Nigerian resilient Healthcare workers, for the adequate preventive measures & preparedness in place. Government, please don’t bring more problems to Nigeria!

    Or else, let the Chinese experts go and treat them in Aso Rock & Government Houses alone.!
    The Covid19 was brought into Nigeria by them, from their hobnobbing all over the globe, plundering our national treasury frivolously.

    Nigerian political rulers are so used to stealing national money and spending it, without any iota of guilt.

    After so many donations to ministry of finance by Banks, companies and individuals, they lack so much self respect and still went ahead to be begging Tesla for ventilators.

    What are you doing or have you done with all the billions of naira donated and allocated by Government, WHO etc for the Covid19?

    That is why we are saying the Individual donors should have put money into the Bank accounts of poor Nigerians, who are not earning during this lockdown, rather than give to the greedy to embezzle again.

    The leaders have already requested for help from China. It means they can never stand on their own two feet on any issues without requiring help from outsiders. What do they even do with all our monies. They cant train professional doctors. They cannot build hospitals they cannot conduct a research they cannot rely on themselves for anything not even for once. I hate these people. You will not be surprised to see them mount pressure on the citizens to be vaccinated. Oh God help your children and deliver us from the hands of old men with conjiled brains.

    Why is the minister of Health rushing to bring Chinese medical team to Nigeria,Have we exhusted our medical professionals?,Did the professionals demand for external help?.This is the time to justify their medical and professional capabilties and credibilities.When will this dependence on white race stop?.Nigerians bag degrees of all sorts ,yet event like this we can not expliot the intrinsic and academic values attached to our aquired degrees to remedy the situations.We have to endeavour to develop our own medical strategy ,as we make these efforts, we will be able to discover our weakness and solution it out.Trial and error develops the best in humanity.Must we reap from where we did not sow.PLEASE MINISTER, REMOVE YOUR CORRUPTIVE PLANS, TO SEEK MEDICAL HELP FROM CHINA.THIS IS A PLOY TO EMBEZZLE OUR NATIONS MONEY.NIGERIAN MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS WILL CONTEND WITH THIS CORONA VIRUS.STOP THAT PLAN.

Nonetheless, they do not continually realize that there are additional benefits so that you can losing weight also. Doctors assert that over weight people are afflicted with a variety of ailments that can be directly attributed to their excess weight. The good news is that people who are overweight along with suffering from various diseases are able to reduce the severity of the illnesses by way of losing weight. You possibly can see a progressive but noted improvement in health when even a small amount of weight reduction is achieved.
