He maintained that the 15-member team of Chinese medical personnel who arrived in the country on April 8 only came share their experiences in fighting the COVID-19.

POLITICS NIGERIA recalls that before the arrival of the Chinese, some Nigerians including the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) said the decision of the government is an ’embarrassment’.
