The Chairman of DAAR Communications Plc, Raymond Dokpesi Jnr, has tested positive for the deadly coronavirus (COVID-19).
Dokpesi disclosed this in a short message to members of staff in Abuja on Monday.
It was gathered that Dokpesi was said to have been self-isolating in the past week before he developed malaria symptoms and started coughing.
He reportedly contacted the Nigerian Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) for a COVID-19 test which came back positive.
“I got a call this morning confirming the result is COVID-19 positive. I am leaving now to the Gwagwalada Isolation Centre for treatment and hope to be back in two weeks.
“Many of you may have interacted with me during our various meetings and I would advise you to get tested as soon as possible,” the message read.
Naija News reports that the contact tracing team of the NCDC is to begin a test of persons, who may have had contact with Dokpesi in the past two weeks as well as all other members of staff.
