The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) has told Nigerians not to expect to see the Coronavirus test results of the Dubai, UK and US returnees.

The agency said it does not make such information public, adding that the results will be shared only with the returnees.

NCDC Director-General, Dr Chikwe Ihekweazu stated this during the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 Thursday’s press briefing in Abuja.

The Director-General further disclosed that the returnees are still undergoing the stipulated 14days of self-isolation.

Dr Chikwe Said:

“We are doing the test; even when the tests are out, we are not going to offer it to you. We will deliver it to the returnees. If they are patients, we will manage that.

“We are not going to make public the results whether you just came back from Dubai or you are living in Nigeria. Results are meant for patients who got tested.”
