ATIKU’S SON FINALLY TESTS NEGATIVE FOR CORONAVIRUS

Mohammed Atiku-Abubakar, son of Nigeria’s former vice-president, has now tested negative for coronavirus.

“I have just received my second consecutive negative result, My discharge is currently being processed, and I hope to be home this evening.”

The Nigerian disease control office does not comment on individual cases.

Mr Atiku-Abubakar was first confirmed to have contracted the virus on March 19 and was subsequently transferred to an isolation centre on the outskirts of the Nigerian capital, Abuja.

The 31-year-old, however, failed to test negative for the virus until today, a 40-day ordeal that experts said could be amongst the longest ever recorded in the country since the first infection was confirmed in Lagos February 27.
