Nigeria’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, has tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19).
Onyeama, who is a member of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, announced this in a tweet on Sunday.
The minister said he decided to run a series of COVID-19 tests after experiencing irritation on his throat.
He said, “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! Win some lose some. Heading for isolation in a health facility and praying for the best,”
