We’re prepared to tackle potential Coronavirus outbreak – FG

Ifeanyi Onuba, Abuja The Federal Government on Tuesday expressed its readiness to tackle any potential outbreak of Coronavirus. The Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Hajiya Sadiya Farouq, said this during her visit to the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Abuja. The minister was at the airport to inspect the arrangement and facilities put in place for the early detection of Coronavirus among in-coming passengers at the airport. She was accompanied on the visit by the Ministers of Aviation Hadi Sirika; Minister of State for Health Olorunnimbe Mamora; and Minister of Information Lai Mohammed among other top government officials. The World Health Organisation had placed Nigeria as a high-risk country to experience an outbreak of Coronavirus. This is because Nigeria has strong trade links with China and about 40,000 to 50,000 Chinese work in Nigeria. During the new year holiday, about 8,000 Chinese travelled out of Nigeria to their country to celebrate the holiday. But Farouq said a lot of technological tools and human resources have been deployed by the relevant agencies of government at the Airport as well as the National Center for Decease Control Agency’s laboratory at Gaduwa, Abuja. These measures, according to her, are also being constantly reinforced by other activities lined up by relevant Ministries, Agencies and Departments. She said, “The World Health Organization has declared the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic as a Global Health Emergency due to the number of people and countries affected. “Nigeria has responded to the pandemic challenge by mobilising all relevant government agencies to ensure our people are protected by putting in place measures for prevention of the spread of the virus, early detection and if necessary managing cases detected in the country.

He said prevention is critical to mitigate the spread of Coronavirus. He said the Nigerian public health sector has demonstrated an effective and sustainable coordination system that is filled out on emergencies. In his comments, Mohammed said that FG has put together an inter-ministerial committee to ensure that Nigeria is ready to tackle any potential outbreak of the disease. He said sensitisation is being made by the ministry to enable Nigerians to understand the nature of the virus. “We are ready for the Coronavirus, we have not recorded a confirmed case of the virus but we have the ability to handle the crisis in case it happens,” he added.

This thing never enter Nigeria na , corona baby pls ignore them

Tackle Lasa fever, leave Coronavirus to China, they will eradicate it. That even western world can't tackle? Na wah for these liars o They are rather prepared to use the virus as a vehicle to embezzle. God let Corona virus never visit Africa..... If the headline reads 'We re not prepared to tackle potential Corona virus outbreak - FG', una go still complain🤥🤥

Pls do not repeat it again! Can FG built hospitals in 10 days? Are this people crazy why are they anticipating this virus this country is a joke Can these people just shut up and tackle all the problems facing the country at the moment? They are always talking the opposite. How prepared are you?

Y'all think this is lassa fever right? Let it not 'outbreak' first. We have seen how visible security issues are going so far talk less of invisible killer. God help us please so that our government will look elsewhere. They say they need seasoned professionals with impeccable records to take over government at all levels. And when these people come and do the work. They are given this type of treatment. You guys should continue with the insults if it makes you feel better...
