Dr. Kawu disclosed these moments after he was declared free of the Novel Coronavirus.

It would be recalled that the Acting Secretary had announced that he and some members of his family had contracted the virus about two weeks ago.

He said the final tests conducted on them returned negative which prompted their discharge.
