…Buhari Tested Negative
However, the Minister of Health, Dr Osagie Ehanire, is expected to clarify the controversy surrounding the report at a press briefing on Tuesday afternoon.
While the President was said to have tested negative, the result of the test for Mr Kyari allegedly came out to be positive.
This comes two weeks after Mr Kyari travelled to Germany to meet with officials of Siemens in Munich on Nigeria’s electricity expansion programme.
He was said to have returned on March 14, although he did not show any symptoms of being infected with the virus.
The President’s Chief of Staff reportedly submitted himself voluntarily for testing and is said to have gone into isolation since he allegedly tested positive.
Amid the report of Mr Kyari’s health status, the NCDC confirmed two new cases of COVID-19 in the country, bringing the total number of cases to 42.
Both cases were discovered in Lagos and Ogun States as one of them was a returning traveller while the second case was a contact of a previously confirmed case.
