4 Nigerians Contract Coronavirus From Chinese Restaurant

5 Nigerians have tested positive for coronavirus in China, according to Dailymail.co.uk.

4 of them had recently visited the same eatery, ‘Emma Food’, multiple times, announced the Guangzhou Health Commission on Tuesday.

The restaurant owner, alongside her daughter and another child, later tested positive for the virus.

Wuhan, the former epicentre, on Wednesday saw all travel restrictions lifted after 76 days.

Seven people who tested positive for the coronavirus have been linked to the same restaurant in China, sparking fears.

The Nigerian citizens with the infections were detected between March 28 and March 30, after screening 3,779 travellers from high-risk countries living in the city.

The coronavirus epidemic erupted in China after dozens of people suffering ‘mysterious viral pneumonia’ were linked to the same seafood market in Wuhan.

Guangzhou is situated 1,028 kilometres (638 miles) south of the former epicentre.

Yuexiu District, where the restaurant is located, has imposed strict measures in a response to the new cluster of infections, according to the press.

The new cases have raised an alarm in Guangzhou which has so far reported 466 coronavirus cases.

A total of 197 people who had close contact with the patients were isolated and tested.

The owner of Emma Food, known by her surname, Zhuang, was put under quarantine on April 1.

The owner’s daughter, aged 8, and her three-year-old playmate both were diagnosed with the deadly disease on the next day.

The Emma Food restaurant has been closed for inspection. Other restaurants in the district have been forced to shut down for 14 days, Chinese media report.

China sealed off the city of Wuhan on January 23, when it became apparent the deadly COVID-19 virus had started there.

But at 00.50am on Wednesday, trains carrying people out of the city began running, and major highways also began opening up as China’s lockdown on Wuhan was lifted.

  1. I thought Coronavirus was no longer in China? Yet that’s where the brain dead NG government went to bring doctors into Nigeria.

  2. I just don’t understand behavior of our government. We never believe we can do something great for ourselves unless we invite the foreign experts. After Nigerian Doctors have dissuaded Federal Government not to invite the Chinese for now, they still went hell bent in inviting Corona Virus into our Country. What’s wrong with us in Nigeria especially the Africa as a whole?.

    Our government has already sold us to these forsaken Chinese people as experiment and they don’t see anything bad in that. Why hurry! hurry? Last week Netherland made it known on CNN that about 660, 000 mask and kits supplied by China were defective. Similar complain by other Countries and the United States. Why is it that we always fail to pay attention to critical issue like this until it has become endemic? We are in big trouble in Nigeria because we just deliberately inviting real Corona Virus into our home Country.

    It appears our leadership are not thinking straight anymore. Corona Virus mortality rate is not at pandemic level right now and our Doctors have assured federal government they can handle it. Why so in hurry to invite killers into our domain?. I don’t trust these Chinese people but our Government doesn’t care if our population is being reduced. Too bad!
