Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, has recovered from COVID-19, about three weeks after testing positive to the virus.
The minister announced his recovery via his verified Twitter handle. He wrote: “By the very special grace of God, my latest COVID-19 test result came back negative after three weeks isolation. I am eternally grateful to my family, the C-in-C and VP, the medical team, relations, friends, colleagues, religious leaders and numerous well-wishers, who through their care, prayers, fasting, messages of support and encouragement never let me walk alone.”
The minister had announced on July 19 that his fourth Covid-19 test returned positive after he felt a slight irritation in his throat. Onyeama, who is a member of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 and one of those driving the fight against the pandemic, had gone into quarantine immediately.
