COVID-19: Chinese Doctors Arrive In Nigeria

A 15-man medical team from China Wednesday arrived in Nigeria aboard an Air Peace chartered flight earlier designated for that purpose by the Federal Government.

The team that came with medical supplies was received by the Minister of Health, Dr. Osagie Ehanire, to complement the efforts of the government to contain the coronavirus in Nigeria.

Wednesday’s delivery is the second batch of medical supplies from China.

Nigerian flag carrier, Air Peace airlines, delivered the supplies after a historical flight to Chinese capital, Beijing.

The flight was operated by the airline’s Boeing B777-200 ER, which arrived at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, at 4:25 p.m. after 15 hours flight.

The Federal Government on April 5 delivered the first batch of medical supplies from Istanbul, Turkey, airlifted by the Air Peace.

Among the materials brought in by the flight are 16-tonnes of test kits, ventilators, disinfectant machines, disposable medical masks, medicines, rubber gloves, protective gowns, goggles, face shields and infra-red thermometers.
