The federal government has advised Nigerians against travel to India, Brazil, Turkey and South Africa where there have been astronomical hikes in COVID-19 cases.  The decision to restrict travel is made even more urgent because of the escalation of new variants in those countries.

This was announced on Monday in Abuja by the head of technical secretariat of the presidential steering committee on COVID-19, Dr. Mukhtar Muhammad during the committee’s daily briefing.

Dr. Muhammad said Nigeria is concerned about the situation in India, a country frequented every year by thousands of Nigerian medical tourists.

He said the third wave of the pandemic is close to Nigeria when one looks at how it has swept through other parts of the world.

India is experiencing a grave and deadly second wave that started in February as it logs record-breaking numbers of COVID-19 cases each day, including a world record of three hundred fifty-three thousand infections on Monday alone. Nearly twenty-four thousand COVID-19 related deaths were also recorded in the country on the same day.
