China Railway Construction Corp, one of the two biggest rail construction contractors by sales revenue in the country, sent the first medical team with experience in fighting COVID-19 to Nigeria on Wednesday to help with the battle against the virus in the country.

The team of 15 members were selected from the group's affiliated hospitals. They are scheduled to work in Nigeria for 30 days and will provide necessary medical aid, guidance for outbreak prevention and control to CRCC's Chinese and Nigerian employees in the West African country.

The Chinese doctors who specialize in such areas as infectious disease prevention, pulmonary and critical care medicine, will also share their practical medical experiences with others in Nigeria. The nation had urged its citizens to remain indoors in Lagos, Abuja and Ogun state for 14 days starting from last Monday.
