Nigeria Closes its High Commission in the United Kingdom after officials Contract COVID-19.

 

NaijaNews report that following two of these officials tested positive for COVID-19, the Nigerian High Commission in London shut down for ten days.

Vanguard revealed that one of the officials tested positive after the test was administered to him while he was at the Home Office for a meeting.

As a result, the Mission began testing all of its officials, and one of them tested positive.

While the Mission regrets any hardship that the mandatory isolation of all its workers may create, it said in a statement that the measure is necessary to prevent the spread of the virus by ensuring that anyone who came into contact with the infected people follows the mandated isolation protocol.

“This afternoon, the Head of Immigration Section and two other officials went to the Home Office for a meeting,” it says.

“At the entry, they were given a Covid test, and one of them tested positive for Covid-19. The officer who was infected was placed on leave immediately, while the other officials who tested negative were likewise placed on leave for the next ten days.

“In response to the challenge, the Mission began testing all of its officials, following which one of the Mission’s officials tested positive.

“In accordance with Covid-19 regulations and the necessity to follow the host country’s laws and regulations, the Mission will be closed for the next 10 days to allow for the obligatory isolation of anyone who had contact with the impacted authorities.

“While the High Commission regrets any inconvenience this may have caused, we ask for the public’s assistance.”
