Federal government insists it has no plans of issuing travel restriction on Coronavirus high-risk countries2

Nigeria has insisted that it will not be banning any legitimate traveller from entering the country.

This comes as many countries are placing travelling restrictions to combat the spread of Covid-19.

Speaking in Abuja today, the minister of state for health, Olorunnimbe Mamora said Nigeria still has no plans on restricting any country’s nationals from entering the country.

Instead, he said the country would be intensifying screening on passengers from eight countries – China, Iran, South Korea, Italy, Germany, Japan, France, and Spain.

Mamora, while giving the national update on the status of the disease in the country, said these eight countries have been highlighted as countries with high risk of widespread community transmission and screening will be intensified on passengers from these countries.

He added that passengers from these eight countries will undertake secondary screening at the point of entry and also advised to self-isolate on entry.
