Dr. Sani Aliyu, National Coordinator of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19, has said some travellers present fake COVID-19 results on arrival in Nigeria.
He said this on Tuesday while responding to the Senate committees on Health and Aviation on the testing procedures after the approval for international flights resumption.
He said almost 40 per cent from a particular flight had tested positive tot he virus despite presenting negative test results from their countries.
Aliyu said an adjustment has been made to the validity period of PCR tests to be presented before boarding from seven to four days.
On its part, the Senate said it is worried about the low number of laboratories in the country. They, however, promised that the request for 52 labs will be made in the 2021 budget.
