The Nigerian Medical Association NMA,and National Association of Resident Doctors have threatened to withdraw their services if the Nigerian Government goes with it’s plan to Invite an 18 man Chinese team into Nigeria for the treatment of COVID-19
They described the idea as embarrassing, as it will undermine the efforts and expertise of front line health care workers risking their lives to keep the Country safe.
The NMA President Dr Francis Faduyile in a press release expressed dismay and utter disappointment about the decision of federal Government.
He noted that it was an embarrassing situation for the team of health worker who are giving their best In the containment of COVID-19 despite deplorable condition.
The lack of personal protective equipment PPE And Grossly inadequate test kits,and centers across the counties as well as lack of any insurance for the health are critical issues yet to be resolved.
He said they were dismayed to learn that Federal government is instead inviting Chinese Doctors,who are not yet out of the woods themselves.with out their knowledge.
Dr Faduyile said instead of inviting the Chinese team into the country, whatever experience they have can be shared by digital technology through conferencing bearing in mind that Dr Chikwe Ihekweazu has only just returned from China.
