Presidency: Only Infected Persons, Doctors Can Disclose COVID-19 Status In Aso Villa


The Presidency has said it will not disclose the COVID-19 infection rate at the Presidential Villa, stating that only the carriers and their doctors can make the information public.



The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, made this known on Sunday in reaction to reports of mass infections at the seat of power.


Adesina, while featuring on Sunday Politics, a current affairs programme on Channels Television from Abuja, declined to disclose whether President Muhammadu Buhari is infected and in isolation.



According to him, presidential aides are humans who can also be infected or fall sick.

When asked to confirm if the disease had truly been ravaging the Villa and how many people had been infected, Adesina said, “No, that will not be within my purview to discuss, maybe if you get the presidential doctor or anybody in the medical side, they will tell you. I wouldn’t know because it is a private thing. If it happens to anybody, it is between the person and, possibly, the doctor. It is not going to be a general knowledge. I will not be able to say it.”



Responding on the question of whether Buhari was infected and isolating, Adesina said, “I think Mr President is quite fine. He is doing his normal routine, following his normal schedule. But if anybody close to him tests positive, that person is required to stay away till he tests again and he tests negative. So, Mr President just follows his normal schedule and routine.”
