Reopening Of International Flight, 22 covid 19 Cases Found Says Minister

The minister of health Dr Osagie Ehanire disclosed in abuja at the presidential task force on covid-19 briefing that since the reopening of the international airport 22 cases of covid 19 patient have been found according to records.

In his words  “We are especially worried, about the huge COVID increases in certain countries with which we have high volume of human traffic.

“The Federal Ministry of Health therefore wishes to advise Nigerians against non-essential travel to high burden countries.

“I wish to specially solicit that all travelers cooperate with border authorities to protect our people and also our health system from stress.He added

“As at 26th September, out of a total of 1,473 Persons of Interest (POI) tested across 3 laboratories in the FCT since the opening of the international travel air space, 22 tested positive.” The minister elaborated

We are, however, testing well below that capacity, because laboratories are receiving fewer samples than they could handle, leaving some partners to doubt our reports

“I therefore appeal to state governments to improve on sample collection and capacity utilisation.

All persons with COVID evocative symptoms, or who may have come in contact with a confirmed covid case should please submit themselves for testing,” Ehanire said
