The Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, Abba Kyari, has tested positive for Coronavirus.

He was said to have possibly contracted the virus during a visit to Germany and Egypt for a meeting on the Nigerian Electricity Regulation Commission, whose executive chairman, Prof. James Momoh, was part of.

The CoS attended many meetings after his return from the trips last week.

Kyari was said to have started coughing during a meeting on Sunday at the Aso Rock Villa, fuelling speculation he could have the virus.

His test result, which came in on Tuesday morning, confirmed him positive.

President Muhammadu Buhari, who had to take the test, however is negative.

Many who had contacts with him have also been advised to isolate themselves, while awaiting their test results.
