A Twitter user, who has contracted the novel coronavirus, has gone on the social media platform to update his followers about his status.

Salihu Umar, who operates the handle, @necessary_cho, posted yesterday that he had tested positive for the virus and was now self-isolating.

"I have just tested positive for COVID19. At the moment, I am still under self isolation as health personnel make their way to my house for evacuation to Gwagwalada isolation centre. My neighbours and employer have been notified accordingly," Umar, who was one of the passengers on a flight from Lagos to Abuja, wrote on the microblogging platform on Monday.

Following up on that first post, his neighbour then updated that he had been evacuated by health officials who came to their estate later that day.

Other Twitter users have been sending out their best wishes to him as they praise him for his transparency with the situation.
