A 15-man medical team from China has arrived at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja.
The team arrived in Nigeria in a chartered Air Peace aircraft on Wednesday afternoon.
They are expected to assist Nigeria in efforts to contain the COVID-19 pandemic.
News that Chinese medical experts were coming into the country had split opinion, but the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 on Friday explained that they would complement ongoing efforts to tackle the pandemic.
Chairman of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, Boss Mustapha, appealed to medical experts in the country to welcome and accept their help as many other countries had.
