 Coronavirus: NCDC Boss Quarantined

The Director General of the National Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), Dr. Chikwe Ihekweazu, has been quarantined for 14 days  following his return from China as a delegate for the World Health Organisation (WHO) in Wuhan, China to understudy the behavioral pattern of the COVID-19.

The Minister of Health, Dr. Osagie Ehanire,  who  disclosed this on Tuesday  in Abuja while briefing the leadership of the Senate  said the move was part of efforts being made to curb the spread of the disease in Nigeria.

Ehanire said that the DG had to be isolated in his residence since he just returned from China and  that the 14-day isolation for the NCDC DG was in line with established safety procedure against the Coronavirus.
