Nigerians have publicly condemned the Federal Government’s decision to invite the Chinese doctors to help tackle the coronavirus pandemic.

Also, the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) on Monday rejected the invitation of the Chinese doctors, saying the government has displayed total disrespect for the Nigerian health workers who are in the frontline of the country’s quest to tackle the pandemic.
