The video of some Nigerian Centre for Disease Control, NCDC officials taking samples from a UK returnee 14 days after isolation has been shared on the internet.
One Helen Salami took to her social media page to share the video of the NCDC officials who she said came in within an hour after putting a call through to them to take samples from her sister who’d been showing symptoms of the virus.
Sharing the video on her page, she wrote,
@NCDCgov best govt agency at the moment,
@NCDCgov were in my house barely an hour after I put a call to them about my sister symptoms,she just returned from UK hence the need to call.keep up the good work.we are praying for a negative result.pls pray for us.
To those who care to know,my sister returned to Nigeria on the 13th,and the 14th day isolation required of her expired on the 27th,but suddenly developed symptoms on 28th.
