Nigeria’s Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo has reportedly gone into isolation after the Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari tested positive for Coronavirus on Monday.
Osinbajo has had several contacts with Kyari since he returned from Germany on 14 March where he contracted the virus.
The Chief of Staff never isolated himself and one of his contact was the Vice President, who always sit by him during executive council meetings.

A presidential source also told THISDAY on Tuesday that the vice president, as a precautionary, measure went into self-isolation Monday night immediately he was informed of Kyari’s test result.
It was also gathered that several top echelons in Aso Rock who may have had contact with Kyari had gone into self-isolation.
President Muhammadu Buhari narrowly escaped being infected with the disease as he tested negative for coronavirus.
