The Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, Mallam Abba Kyari has revealed that he is recovering well after testing positive of the coronavirus infection.

Kyari also confirmed in a statement on Sunday that he will be transferred from Abuja to Lagos for further medical checks and tests.

Naija News recalls Mallam Kyari was last week Tuesday confirmed positive for the COVID-19 infection.

While expressing optimism of getting back to his official duties in no distant time, Mallam Kyari appreciated those who have been taking charge of his official functions as well as health officials treating him and all others affected by the virus.

The statement read: “This is a precautionary measure: I feel well, but last week, I tested positive for coronavirus, the pandemic that is sweeping the world. I have followed all the protocols government has announced to self-isolate and quarantine.

“I am writing to let you know that on medical advice, I will transfer to Lagos later today for additional tests and observation.

“This is a precautionary measure: I feel well, but last week, I tested positive for coronavirus, the pandemic that is sweeping the world.”

The President’s Chief of Staff, however, noted that he won’t be making use of the public health system for his treatment as he had made private arrangements for his own treatment.

“I have made my own care arrangements to avoid further burdening the public health system, which faces so many pressures. Like many others that will test also positive, I have not experienced high fever or other symptoms associated with this new virus and have been working from home.

“I hope to be back at my desk very soon. I have a team of young, professional, knowledgeable and patriotic colleagues, whose dedication has been beyond the call of duty, who continue to work seven days a week, with no time of the day spared.

“ We will continue to serve the President and people of Nigeria, as we have for the past five years.

While commending President Buhari for his leadership, he advised Nigerians to keep to the advice of health professionals as the world battles to contain the coronavirus disease.

“Listen to good advice from the proper authorities: pay no heed to quack cures or fake news from social media. President Buhari will do whatever it takes to protect the health and safety of our people and get the country back on its feet as soon as possible.

“Like the whole world, we are dealing with a new disease. Our experts are learning more all the time about coronavirus, what it does and how we can combat it. What we do know is that while some may become very sick, many others who contract the virus will not, and may have no symptoms at all.
