Chinese doctors ready for consultations through video conference –CCECC

The 14 Chinese doctors who arrived in Abuja on Wednesday are being quarantined at a compound in the Idu area of Abuja.

The facility is owned by the China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation which facilitated their trip to Nigeria.

The isolation compound, it was gathered, was inspected and vetted by the Ministry of Health officials on Wednesday.

The medical personnel, who are experts in infectious diseases, respiratory illness, intensive care, cardiology, neurology, general surgery and anesthesiology, are expected to share their experiences on coronavirus with their Nigerian counterparts.

They would also attend to the CCECC workers at the end of their 14-day quarantine.

Various professional groups, including the Nigerian Medical Association, had opposed the team’s visit, stating that the Chinese experts might worsen the coronavirus pandemic in the country.
