Geoffrey Onyeama, Foreign Affairs Minister, has recovered from COVID-19 weeks after testing positive to the virus.

Onyeama made this public on Wednesday via his verified Twitter handle saying his latest COVID-19 test result came back negative.

“By the very special grace of God my latest #COVID19 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,” he said.

On 19th July, Onyeama announced that he tested positive to the virus via his official twitter handle. According to the tweet, Onyeama took his fourth COVID-19 test after feeling some signs of throat irritation.

He stated that the result returned positive, and he proceeded to isolate himself in a health facility, where he received treatment.
