The upper chamber also urged the Federal Government to allocate more funds to the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).
These resolutions followed a point of order raised by the Chairman; Senate Committee on Primary Health Care and Communicable diseases, Chukwuka Utazi from Enugu state.
According to the resolutions, the funds will be used to buy “the latest and most recent equipment; that there is for research and diagnosis of tropical diseases disrupting human existence; as prevention is always better and cheaper than cure”.
Utazi also said over 170 persons have died and more than 630 are infected.
He said; “health officials fear that the number of infected people will rise rapidly; as hundreds of millions of Chinese people travel within China and abroad during the week-long lunar holiday which began on Sunday.”
