COVID-19: Reps caucus kicks against Chinese doctors

He said the government should immediately jettison all its plans to host the team comprising of 18 Chinese medical doctors and other medical experts.

Elumelu said the federal government should consider the apprehensions expressed by Nigerians and professional bodies including the Nigeria Medical Association (NMA) over the decision, in addition to widespread trepidations over the safety of medical equipment and kits from China now.
