The Managing Director of China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation (CCECC), Michael Yigao, has said the medical experts that arrived the country on April 8 are in the company’s care.
Yigao told newsmen on Monday that the team came into the country to specially help CCECC fight the disease and protect its employees.
He said the team had a telecast meeting with the Minister of Health and some doctors in the country and shared their experience in China on how they fought the virus and the meeting was successful.
CCECC boss said the medical experts would be heading home as soon as the ban on commercial flights to China was lifted.
Yigao commended the Nigerian government for its response to fighting the disease, saying the CCECC would like to build on the strong mutual relationship between Nigeria and China.
The whereabouts of the Chinese medical team became an issue after the Presidential Task Force’s briefing on COVID – 19 on Thursday last week
Health Minister, Osagie Ehanire, had said the federal government could not account for the medical team because the doctors were guests of CCECC.
