Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, has contracted COVID-19.
The minister, who made this known on Sunday via his verified Twitter handle, said his fourth Covid-19 test returned positive on Saturday.
Narrating the experience, Onyeama said he had felt slight itching in his throat and had had his samples collected for Covid-19 test.
He noted that he was headed to an isolation centre for treatment while he hopes for quick recovery.
He wrote, “(I) did my fourth Covid-19 test yesterday at the first sign of a throat irritation and unfortunately this time it came back positive. That is life! (You) win some, lose some. (I’m) heading for isolation in a health facility and praying for the best.”
As a member of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, Onyeama is one of those driving the fight against the pandemic, especially regarding the repatriation of stranded citizens abroad.
