The Medical and Dental Consultants Association of Nigeria MDCAN, University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital UITH chapter, has warned the Federal Government against inviting Chinese medical experts to help fight the deadly coronavirus pandemic in the country.
Meridian Spy had earlier reported that the federal government, on Friday in Abuja, said a medical team from China will arrive the country to support the government in the fight against COVID-19.
But the Chairman of the medical association, Muhammed Adeboye, on Saturday in Ilorin said that Nigeria has no alarming cases compared to other countries to warrant external help. Any external unwarranted assistance could aid the foreigners to manipulate the virus to be more harmful to Nigerians, he added.
The MDCAN president stated: “It is bad for us to be expecting experts because people are not dying massively in Nigeria and cases are not increasing astronomically.
”For now, we are not stressed out as far as the crisis is concerned and people are been discharged day-in-day-out.
”So, there is no indication to bring any professional from any part of the world.
”Bringing people in can be an avenue for many terrible things to happen as well because we don’t have the capacity to manipulate viruses whether confirmed or not.
”It is a novel virus which might be probably man-made and to a large extent, the rate of infection here is not as much as what we have in other countries.
”They can still manipulate to want to know what it is that is working for us, then go ahead to manipulate the virus again.
”And then, they will now import the virus with the so-called unwarranted assistance, before you know it more people will be dying of it.
”So, we don’t need any foreign assistance, not even from China.”
As at 10:30 pm 3rd April there are 210 confirmed cases of #COVID19 reported in Nigeria, with four deaths while 25 persons have been discharged after recovering.
