A Nigerian lady identified as Helen Salami has shared a video on Twitter, in which officials of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control could be seen taking samples to be tested for coronavirus from her sister who happens to be a UK-returnee.
Helen said her sister returned from the United Kingdom and self-isolated for 14 days, adding that she started showing symptoms the following day her self-isolation ended.
She said the officials arrived barely after one hour she called to inform them of her sister’s situation.
