Nigeria former Vice president Atiku Abubakar has reacted to President Muhammadu Buhari’s Chief of Staff Abba Kyari testing positive for coronavirus.
Multiple media reports Tuesday alleged that Kyari tested positive several days after returning from an official trip to Germany
“My thoughts and prayers are with Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari,” Abubakar tweeted on Tuesday.
The reports said Kyari was tested on Saturday based on medical advice, although he was not exhibiting any symptoms.
The result, however, came back on Monday positive and he has since gone into isolation even though the symptoms are yet to manifest.
The sources also said Buhari was also advised to run a test but he was negative.
The confirmed cases of #COVID19 in Nigeria have risen to 40 out of which 2 have been discharged and one death recorded.
More details soon.
