I Am In Self-Isolation, Not Quarantine, Says Ihekweazu




Director General of the Nigeria Center for Disease Control, Chike Ihekweazu, has described as false the news that he was quarantined following his return from China.

“I am well and have continued my duties from home since my return from China as part of the WHO-China Mission on #COVID19” he said via a tweet

“The rumour that I am sick or in quarantine is obviously false.”

“I look forward to returning to the office after 14 days of self-isolation.” He said

The Minister of Health, Dr. Osagie Ehanire, is however reported to have said Ihekweazu was quarantined for 14 days because he just returned from China.

Ehanire revealed this when he was explaining to the principal officers of the senate before whom he was providing an update on measures taken to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
