President Muhammadu Buhari’s Chief of Staff Abba Kyari has gone into self isolation after testing positive for the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
Kyari who just returned from an official trip in Germany where he met with officials of Siemens in Munich on the Nigerian electricity expansion programme is currently self- isolating in his house and not at the isolation centre in Gwagwalada.
The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) has advised his staff and others that had contact with him since his arrival to self-isolate. This came in despite their pleas to be tested, the NCDC said they don’t have sufficient test kits and they reserve the available ones for people showing symptoms.
Abba Kyari returned back from Germany on Saturday 14th March and hasn’t shown any symptoms but was advised to take the test. His positive result mandated President Buhari to also take the test on Monday night and he has tested negative for the COVID-19 virus.
