A sad news was received in Aso Rock (Nigerian Presidential house) today when a report came that the Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, Abba Kyari, tested positive to coronavirus.

Kyari had been sick since he came back from his reported visit to Germany (which has about 29,056 infections and 123 deaths) and Egypt (which has 327 confirmed cases of Coronavirus and 14 deaths).

He started displaying a few symptoms in a meeting which has President Buhari, Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, ministers and other members of the Federal Executive Council in attendance. In fact that meeting had to be postponed due his critical condition.

It was confirmed this morning by a top government source that the test conducted by the Nigerian Center for Disease Control, NDCD, on Monday has indicated that Kyari is positive to the virus. He is currently in isolation receiving medical attention.

Meanwhile, President Buhari's test came out negative according to the source. It is still unknown if those who had contacted Kyari also contracted the virus especially those that went with him to Egypt and Germany.

"Nigeria so far has 40 confirmed cases of Coronavirus with one death recorded," according to reports.
