The Minister of Health, Dr Osagie Ehanire, says he is disappointed over Nigeria’s placement on the United Kingdom’s red list, after detection of the COVID-19 Omicron variant.
Dr Ehanire, expressed his disappointment on Sunday when he appeared on National Television.
According to him, the decision by the UK government was too sudden, as he noted that it would have multiple impacts on commerce, and interrupt activities during the Christmas and New Year festivities.
It would be recalled that on Saturday, December 4, the UK announced the move to place Nigeria on its red alert list, which would restrict Nigerians from travelling to that country.
