In a letter he wrote to Nigerians, Kyari said he tested positive for the disease last week and would move to Lagos for further medical tests based on doctors’ advice.
The president’s chief of staff, who expressed optimism that he would resume work soon, said he was yet to experience any of the symptoms associated with coronavirus.
The letter read: “I am writing to let you know that on medical advice, I will transfer to Lagos later today (Sunday) 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 the protocols the 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 test also positive, I have not experienced high fever or other symptoms associated with this new virus and have been working from home. I hope to be back at my desk very soon.”
