Health authorities in Nigeria are expressing concerns over Nigerians in diaspora who are now returning to the country.
Their concern is based on the fact that the returnees pose the highest risk to Nigeria right now.
One of the officials told THISDAY that “these Nigerians are returning from abroad where they have this disease and bring it into the country and once they enter the country they lie to the airport authorities and medical practitioners about their travel history.
“Out of the 22 cases the country has recorded so far, 19 of them are returning Nigerians.”
Meanwhile, across the globe, scientists and medical experts are racing against time on how to end the scourge of Covid-19 earlier than the current projection of up to 18 months.
United States President, Mike Pence and his wife Karen Pence have both tested negative for the Coronavirus, his office announced Saturday night.
The test became necessary when one of his staff tested positive to virus.
Pence is leading the administration’s coronavirus task force and has been a regular presence at President Donald Trump’s side in recent weeks.
