…intervention may escalate COVID-19 crisis in Nigeria

In a fit of pique, the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) has given a thumbs down for the decision of the Federal Government to get Chinese medical team involved in the fight against Coronavirus in the country.

The NUJ President, Mr Chris Isiguzo, said:” The union is alarmed by the decision of the Federal Government to bring  Chinese Medical doctors into Nigeria to fight COVID-19.

“We caution that it will be counter productive to bring in Chinese doctors. We  reject a situation where Nigerians will be used as a Guinea pig for any experiment,” he said in a statement in Abuja on Saturday.
PerSecondnews recalls that China, where the pandemic broke out early this year, was the epicenter of the novel Coronavirus.
More deaths have been recorded in Italy, UK and other countries thereby overtaking China.
He gave a thumbs up for Nigerian medical doctors, saying they are doing exceptionally well in fighting the outbreak.“Thus, it is pertinent to plead with the Federal Government to stop this Medical Team from coming to Nigeria because of the Italian example where there was an inexplicable spike in COVID-19 related deaths when the Chinese doctors arrived the country.

“The Federal Government should as a matter of urgent concern investigate the allegation, that what is happening today is associated with the launch of the 5G communication network as Nigerians are becoming more agitated.

“We urge the Federal Government to be more proactive in dealing with these emerging issues because any mistake made will be catastrophic,” Isiguzo said.
