We Told The Minister Of Health That Chinese Medical Team Is With Us : CCECC

Michaelhael Yigao, managing director of China Civil Engineering
Construction Corporation (CCECC), says the Chinese
medical experts that arrived the country on April 8 are in the
company’s care.
The whereabouts of the Chinese team became an issue
after the presidential task force briefing on COVID-19 of
Thursday.
Osagie Ehanire, minister of health, had said the federal
government could not explain the whereabouts of the
Chinese medical team because they are the guests of the
CCECC.
But Yigao told reporters on Monday that the team came
into the country to specially help CCECC fight the disease
and protect its employees.
“The team had a telecast meeting with the minister of
health and some doctors around the country and shared
their experience in China on how they’re fighting the virus
and the meeting was very positive,” he said.
“They are here with us and have continued to teach our
staff how to protect themselves because protection and
prevention are more important than the treatment.
“Most of the workers understand the situation now and
they know the risk, so they follow the proper procedures
and cooperate with their instructors.”
He said the medical experts would be heading home as
soon as the ban on commercial flights to China is lifted.
Yiago praised the Nigerian government for its reaction to
fighting the disease, saying the CCECC would like to build
on the strong mutual relationship between Nigeria and
China.
He said that CCECC would continue to give quality
support to the Nigerian people in all areas
“Right now, commercial flight to China is not open, but
when flights are open again, we’re considering the team
going back to China,” he said.
“In a big country like Nigeria, it can be a bit difficult to
control a pandemic because you will have to make all the
people of such a large country understand that it is
serious and real thing.
“I think Nigeria is taking this very seriously and you can
see it in the implementation of the lockdown and the
suspension of international flights etc.
“And like other companies in Nigeria, we will do whatever
we can to help the country, like building treatment
centres and training people on how to handle the virus.
“We understand the COVID-19 pandemic challenge in
Nigeria because we are based here and have a lot of
employees and we do believe, that with efforts from the
government from the people, we will win this war.
“I hope the people of Nigeria understand that we need
the help of all peoples across the world to win this fight
against coronavirus.”
