A Nigerian journalist, who attended the African Magic Viewers Choice Awards, on Saturday, March 14, has called out the Nigeria Center for Disease Control (NCDC).
The lady identified as, Sandra Ezekwesili, said she was not tested after the award.
According to her, even though she might have been exposed to a confirmed coronavirus case at the award show, she and other attendees were told to self-isolate and they were not tested.
She noted that the law by the NCDC is that people can only get tested if they show symptoms. Recall that Davido announced that his wife-to-be Chioma tested positive for coronavirus even though she showed no symptoms.
The singer had also revealed that he and 31 others got tested and only Chioma’s result came back positive. Ezekwesili asked why they were tested by the agency despite not showing any symptoms.
Ezekwesili asked if the agency’s protocol has changed. She said over 30 asymptomatic people got tested while people who may have been exposed to a confirmed case were not tested.
