The Medical and Dental Consultants Association of Nigeria (MDCAN), University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital (UITH) chapter has come out to advise the Federal Government against inviting medical experts from China to help in fighting Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
The Chairman of the association, Dr Muhammed Adeboye revealed this recently in Ilorin.
According to him, Nigeria has no alarming cases compared to other countries, so no external help is necessary at this point.
He added that the fact that people are not dying aggressively and the number of cases is not increasing astronomically proves Nigeria is not stressed out yet amid the coronavirus outbreak.
His words, “It is bad for us to be expecting experts because people are not dying massively in Nigeria and cases are not increasing astronomically.
”For now, we are not stressed out as far as the crisis is concerned and people are been discharged day-in-day-out.
”So, there is no indication to bring any professional from any part of the world,”
”Bringing people in can be an avenue for many terrible things to happen as well because we don’t have the capacity to manipulate viruses whether confirmed or not.
”It is a novel virus which might be probably man-made and to a large extent, the rate of infection here is not as much as what we have in other countries.
”They can still manipulate to want to know what it is that is working for us, then go ahead to manipulate the virus again.
”And then, they will now import the virus with the so-called unwarranted assistance, before you know it more people will be dying of it.
”So, we don’t need any foreign assistance, not even from China,” the MDCAN president said.”
