THE China Railway Construction Corporation, CRCC, through its subsidiary China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation, CCECC, has said that the primary purpose of visiting Chinese doctors to Nigeria is to escort the medical supply and provide guidance for their usage and distribution.

“In addition, under the directive of Chinese Embassy and in response to the Nigerian Government’s request, the working team may also share with Nigerian medical teams effective methods on how to contain the COVID-19 and provide advice on the use of relevant medical equipment. The team is not coming to treat Covid-19 patients in Nigeria.

“Finally, in keeping with its corporate value, stride with Nigeria, CCECC is participating in the construction of two COVID-19 response facilities in the FCT for free as part of its corporate social responsibilities. The facilities are a 196-bed at ThisDay Dome Treatment Centre, in collaboration with Sahara Group and Arise News; and the 150-bed Idu Depot Treatment Centre,” he said.
