The Nigerian Senate, on Tuesday, called for the Federal Government to plan a ban on travelling to the countries hugely affected by coronavirus as global toll hits over 6000, The Nation reports.
According to GateKepper.ng, the Senate also urged the federal government to set up more coronavirus testing centres, saying the five already established were grossly inadequate for a country of over 200 million populations.
This followed a ‘point of order’ by Chairman Senate Committee on Health, Senator Ibrahim Oloriegbe (APC, Kwara), who said Nigerians should be advised against traveling to epicentres of the pandemic.
Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, said there were no testing centres in the whole of southeast and north, urging the Centre for Disease Control to set up more centres in these zones. He said those already established should be upgraded to a global standard.
