Malam Abba Kyari, chief of staff to President Muhammadu Buhari has been moved to Lagos for treatment of his coronavirus infection, sources told Chronicle NG.
He will be treated at the Mainland Infectious Disease Hospital, in Yaba.
University of Abuja Gwagwalada Teaching Hospital in Abuja initially treated him.
Kyari, who returned from Germany on 14 March tested positive for coronavirus on Monday.
This triggered huge panic in the Presidential Villa in Abuja and outside as there were speculations that he may have spread the virus to his contacts.
In a way, the speculations were not totally off-rail as three workers in Kyari’s office tested positive on Tuesday.
However, both President Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo tested negative for the virus.
Nevertheless, fears persisted Wednesday that many contacts of the President’s chief aide may have contracted the virus.
Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote is among the contacts.
