The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed on Wednesday denied reports that one of the Chinese doctors that recently arrived in Nigeria has tested positive for the COVID-19.

The Minister said the reports about the doctor testing positive was nothing but fake news.

Mohammed, who is also a member of the Presidential Task Force (PTF), made the clarification during the daily media briefing.

“This morning, there was a message that went viral, to the effect that one of the Chinese doctors tested positive and that news was supposed to have emanated from the Twitter handle of the federal government.

“I want to say, to the best of our knowledge here, there’s no such thing.

“I’ve also just received two hate dramas and other fake news while I was sitting here, which I’ve been unable to open. But we will continue to debunk fake news and we’ll try our best to timely give you information about the COVID-19, either through our daily press briefings or through the website of the NCDC and the task force,” the Minister said.

Naija News recalls the Chinese doctors arrived in the country last Wednesday to help with the fight against Coronavirus (COVID-19).

However, the Federal Government later disclosed that it didn’t invite the Chinese doctors who arrived in the country last Wednesday to help with the fight against Coronavirus (COVID-19).

The Minister of Health, Dr. Osagie Ehanire, stated this when he appeared on Channels TV’s News at 10 on Saturday.

In his clarification, the Minister disclosed that the doctors were invited by the China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation (CCECC) to help with the fight against Coronavirus (COVID-19).
