COVID-19: Atiku’s son tests negative after 40 days

The son of Nigeria’s former vice-president, Mohammed Atiku-Abubakar, has now tested negative for coronavirus.

“I have just been given my second result and it came out negative,” Mr Atiku-Abubakar made it known to our source on Monday afternoon. “My discharge is currently being processed, and I hope to be home this evening.”

Mohammed Atiku was first confirmed positive of the virus on March 19 and was subsequently transferred to an isolation centre located on the outskirts of the Nigerian capital, Abuja.

The 31-year-old, however, failed to test negative for the virus until today, which has lasted for 40 days, which is the longest ever recorded in the country since the first infection was confirmed in Lagos February 27.

Although some scientists estimated the virus could last as long as 37 days in a human’s body.
