Reports have indicated that Nigerians have started selling COVID-19 diagnostic test kits in black markets.
Chikwe Ihekweazu, the director-general of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) made the disclosure in a media briefing in Abuja on Thursday, May 28, The Cable reports.
Black markets are non-regulated platforms or economies where a series of transactions take place with little respect for established rules.
Ihekweazu urged Nigerians to be very careful when purchasing tests kits from such avenues.
There is a growing black market on rapid diagnostics test kits in Nigeria, we have to be careful in what we buy, how we use it and how we interpret the results that they provide,” he said.
