The presidential flag-bearer of the African Democratic Congress (ADC), Dumebi Kachikwu, has tested positive for the dreaded COVID-19 virus.
NEWS BREAK reports that Kachikwu disclosed this on Saturday in a statement, urging Nigerians to be vigilant as the virus makes a comeback.
According to him, he is presently isolating and has cancelled all public engagements till he receives a negative report.
“Nigerians must not let their guard down even though the government has relaxed COVID rules. Our public health system can’t cope with the fallout of huge infection rates with attendant symptoms, especially at a time when our healthcare professionals are leaving the country in droves.
“We must increase testing and take all necessary precautions not to spread the virus. We must not allow political rallies to become COVID spreaders and reverse the gains made in combating the virus. We will survive the Corona Virus if we all remain vigilant,” Kachikwu said.
This news medium reports that more rarely, the COVID-19 disease can be fatal. These symptoms are similar to the flu (influenza) or the common cold, which are a lot more common than COVID-19.
