Coronavirus: Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) chief quarantined for 14 days

The Director-General of the Nigeria Center for Disease Control (NCDC), Chikwe Ihekweazu, has been quarantined for 14 days, the Minister of Health, Osagie Ehanire, said on Tuesday.

Ehanire stated this when he appeared at the Senate to give a report on the ministry’s efforts to control the spread of the disease in the nation.

“Ihekweazu, who travelled to China to understudy the behavioral pattern of the coronavirus, was quarantined in his home,” the minister included.

He told the lawmakers that the NCDC chief was quarantined because he just came back from China.

As indicated by him, the standard practice was for anybody coming into Nigeria to be quarantined for 14 days before mingling with other members of the public.
