The travel warning also included South Africa, Turkey, and Brazil.
The Presidential Steering Committee on COVID-19 has also cautioned Nigerians against ignoring virus protection precautions, claiming that the pandemic was far from over.
Dr Mukhtar Muhammad, the PSC’s National Incident Manager, spoke at the committee’s media briefing on Monday.
Muhammad said, “While we continue to reopen the economy, we must also be aware of the happenings around the globe. Mr Chairman (Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha) and the Honourable Minister of Health (Prof. Osagie Ehanire) have made reference to specific incidents in India, Turkey, Brazil and South Africa.
“We sympathise with the people of these countries because it is really a very trying time particularly for India that is recording over 300,000 cases a day, and recording over 2,000 deaths.
“India is a prime destination for medical tourism for Nigeria. We know that many Nigerians like to travel – to go to India but now… we urge Nigerians to limit all travels to only essential travels, particularly to these affected countries.”
