The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control has debunked the report by a twitter user, @i_am_dunnii, who wrote: “A Doctor brother in Abuja just told me that some of the COVID -19 tests kits sent by Jack are been sold.A pharmacist sent a message to him to ask him if he is interested.The @NCDCgov should please investigate.”
Responding, the NCDC said:
“This is FALSE. The test kits the Government of Nigeria has received can only be used in molecular laboratories. These are being distributed by NCDC to the six #COVID19 testing laboratories in Nigeria.”
However, the tweet has since been deleted by her.
