FEDERAL GOVERNMENT CONSIDERS BAN ON FLIGHTS FROM COUNTRIES WITH HIGH RATE OF CORONAVIRUS.

The National Assembly and the Ministry of Aviation are considering banning flights from the United Kingdom, the United States and other countries with high rates of COVID-19.

The Chairman of the Senate Committee on Aviation, Smart Adeyemi, said a decision on the issue would be announced next week.

The plan may not be unconnected with pressures on Federal government to stop further spread of coronavirus by banning flights from nations with high rates of the virus.

President of the Nigerian Medical Association, Professor Innocent Ujah, had earlier said travellers from the UK and the US were worsening COVID-19 cases in Nigeria.
