‘I Have No Information About The Chinese Doctors’ – Minister Of Health Tells Nigerians.


The Minister of Health, Dr Osagie Ehanire, on Thursday, expressed concerns about the curiosity of Nigerians on the whereabouts of the Chinese doctors that came into the country to support Nigeria for its fight against covid19.

He said he would really be grateful if Nigerians stopped asking him about the whereabouts of the Chinese medical team.

In his words, “On the Chinese Doctors, I want to, first of all, explain that I think not all of them were doctors and I think that I heard that 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 happened to them or where they are. There seems to be a lot of interest in these doctors but they are staff of the company and I think they are on the company visa.

“So, I will be very happy if you do not ask me about where they are because they are not really our guests in that sense. But we have been able to learn some things from them by interacting with them on their experiences in their country. “We have shared experiences as to what they did in their country, how they managed their Covid-19”.

An interesting development it is.
