COVID-19 in Nigeria: Concerns Mount over Returnees

Health authorities in Nigeria are expressing concerns over Nigerians in diaspora who are now returning to the country.
Their concern is based on the fact that the returnees pose the highest risk to Nigeria right now.
One of the officials said
that “these Nigerians are returning from abroad where they have this disease and bring it into the country and once they enter the country they lie to the airport authorities and medical practitioners about their travel history.
“Out of the 22 cases the country has recorded so far, 19 of them are returning Nigerians.”
