FG Seals Abuja Laboratory for giving false COVID-19 results to international travelers
The federal government has blocked a laboratory in Abuja for providing fake COVID-19 results to foreign travelers.
This was announced by the Director General of the Nigerian Center for Disease Control (NCDC) Dr. Chikwe Ihekweazu during the weekly press conference of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 in Abuja.
He said the development followed a government investigation after behind-the-scenes reports of some labs issuing false results after collecting 25,000 N25,000 from travelers were found in the media last year.
Ihekweazu said that an investigation was carried out on the basis of this report and the infected laboratory was sealed with the assistance of the Metropolitan Federal Administration.
