Ekiti state has been plunged into anxiety after Governor Kayode Fayemi confirmed he has taken coronavirus test after meeting with two confirmed cases.
Fayemi made this known in a tweet on his verified official Twitter handle on Wednesday morning, March, 25, at exactly 10:57 am.
The governor’s revelation came in barely twenty-four hours after President Muhammadu Buhari’s chief of staff, Abba Kyari, tested positive to the deadly infection.
The fear at Aso Rock was heightened as three aides who established contact with the chief of staff also tested positive to the virus.
Fayemi said he has gone on self-isolation since Tuesday evening, March 24, after confirmation that two of the people who he had a meeting with tested positive.
The governor, however, also urged colleagues and people who might have established contact with him to do the Covid-19 test and go on self-isolation to avoid further spread.
“I just took a CoviD 19 test, having gone into self-isolation since yesterday evening,” Governor Fayemi said.
“I’m asymptomatic and feel well, but I was in meetings with two people who had since tested positive.
“I look forward to an all clear and have encouraged all my colleagues to take the test,” the governor further submitted.
