Three testing centres for suspected cases of coronavirus have been opened by the federal government of Nigeria.
The Herald gathered that the Minister of Health, Osagie Ehanire, disclosed this at the briefing after Wednesday’s Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting at the State House.
According to him, the designated laboratories have been set up in Lagos, Abuja and Irrua in Edo state to handle such tests.
He said the reagents were acquired about eight days ago. The Minister however assured that no case of the virus has been detected in the country or Africa.
