Nigerians from Ulkraine-Russian war
In the midst of Ukraine-Russian war, Federal Government has disclosed that about 2,357 Nigerians have been screened by Port Health Services out of the over 8,000 evacuated.
The Secretary to the Government of the Federation and the Chairman, Presidential Steering Committee on COVID-19, Boss Mustapha, made the statement at the National briefing of the Committee in Abuja
On the figure, he said 193 tested positive of Coronavirus, adding that they are being managed in accordance with the protocols.
“So far, the world has recorded over 471 million confirmed cases, 6 million deaths and over 11 billion vaccine doses administered, while in Nigeria, we have recorded 255,103 and 3,142 persons have died as a result of COVID-19,” he revealed.
Expressing dissatisfaction over the number of vaccinated Nigerians, he said over 20 million persons have been vaccinated with at least the first dose, saying that, “These number is not very encouraging, hence, the need for all eligible Nigerians to come out and be vaccinated.”
He hereby warned Nigerians to be mindful of scammers, especially in Dubai and Saudi Arabia, who come to assist them in accessing the NITP and in the process, register them as children to avoid paying for the post-arrival tests.
