Nigerians React As Abba Kyari Tests Positive To Coronavirus (COVID-19) Infection



Mallam Abba Kyari, the Chief of Staff to Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari has tested positive for the coronavirus (COVID-19) infection.

According to THISDAY, The Nigeria Center for Disease Control (NCDC) confirmed the status of the President’s chief of staff.

Naija News had earlier reported that Mr. Kyari visited Germany and Egypt and only returned this week.

Mr. Kyari returned exactly a week later on Saturday, March 14th, but did not show any symptoms. He reportedly had a meeting on containing the COVID-19 pandemic in Nigeria all through Sunday, where he reportedly started to cough.

He then voluntarily submitted himself for testing and was informed of his status yesterday. Kyari has however gone into absolute isolation following the test result.

Following the recent disclosure, Nigerians have started reacting to the development.
