Nigerian mission in London shut after officials contract COVID-19

The Nigerian Mission in London, United Kingdom, has been closed for 10 days as two officials tested positive for COVID-19.

One of the officers had gone to the UK Home Office for a meeting on Thursday where a test revealed his status.

This necessitated the testing of other Mission staff resulting in another positive case.

In line with COVID-19 regulation and the need to adhere to the rules and regulation of the host country, the Mission said it will close down for the next 10 days, in order to observe the mandatory isolation of those who were in contact with the affected officials.

This was contained in a statement titled, ‘Closure of Nigerian High Commission, London.’

It read, “This afternoon, the Head of Immigration Section and two other officials went for a meeting at the Home Office.

“At the entrance, Covid test was administered on them and one of them tested positive to COVID-19. The affected officer immediately isolated while the other officials, who tested negative will also isolate for the next 10 days.

“In response to this challenge, the Mission embarked on testing all officials of the Mission, after which another official of the Mission tested positive.

“In line with COVID-19 regulation and the need to adhere to the rules and regulation of the host country, the Mission will close down for the next 10 days, in order to observe the mandatory isolation of those who were in contact with the affected officials.
