COVID-19: NCDC raises alarm as test kits flood black markets
The Director-General of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), Chikwe Ihekweazu, has said that COVID-19 diagnostic test kits are being sold in “black markets”.
Ihekweazu stated this while speaking at the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 briefing on Thursday.
He warned Nigerians desperate to test for Coronavirus to be careful.
“There is a growing black market on rapid diagnostics test kits in Nigeria.
