The Federal Government has received a donation of three smart walk through testing booths from the government of the Republic of Korea. The items were donated on Thursday in Abuja to boost Nigeria’s COVID-19 sample collection, testing capacity and to reduce infections among health workers.

Chikwe Ihekweazu, the Director-General of the Nigeria Center for Disease Control (NCDC) while receiving the items said this will support the government’s efforts to ramp up testing for the virus.

The Country Director of the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA), Woochan Chang commended the Federal Government’s response to the pandemic. He also said that the donations will further boost the performance of government’s response to the pandemic.  

“The Smart Walk-through Booths will improve protection for medical staff during sample collection, and support mass screening for COVID19 in a timely and efficient manner,” Chang said.

The Minister of State for Health, Senator Adeleke Mamora appreciated the Korean government for its continual support to strengthen Nigeria’s response to COVID19.
