Coronavirus: Buhari’s COS, Abba Kyari Lands in Lagos Via Air Ambulance
SWITZERLAND, MARCH 30 – Abba Kyari, the Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, has arrived Lagos.
He was transferred from Abuja to Lagos to continue his treatment for coronavirus.
Kyari was conveyed to Nigeria’s commercial hub in an air ambulance, according to media sources.
The top government official tested positive after he returned from Germany.
Kyari in a statement on Sunday said, “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. I have followed all protocols government has announced to self-isolate and quarantine.
“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 also test positive, I have not experienced high fever or other symptoms associated with this virus and have been working from home. I hope to be back at my desk very soon.
“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.
“This is a disease that recognises no difference between North and South, men or women, rich or poor. We are all in this together.”
Meanwhile, Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) says it is looking for
6,000 people who have had close contact with persons infected with coronavirus.
