CoronaVirus; President Buhari

Published

The illness of Abba Kyari, who is in his 70s, brings the disease into the immediate circle of 77-year-old President Muhammadu Buhari.

Kyari has a history of medical complications, including diabetes, and is the gatekeeper to the president. Many who wish to deal with Buhari must go through Kyari, including Nigeria’s top politicians and businessmen.

He traveled to Germany in early March with a delegation of other Nigerian officials for meetings with Siemens AG. It is unclear if he self-isolated upon his return to Nigeria.

A presidency spokesman did not comment on whether Buhari has been tested. The president himself has undisclosed medical ailments, and spent five months in London for treatments in 2017.

COVID-19: Scammers dressed as doctors, set up fake Coronavirus testing sites, where they charge people $240 and steal their DNA

Local officials said a self-proclaimed medical marketing company set up makeshift testing sites outside various churches in Louisville with workers dressed head to toe in hazmat gear. They claim the scammers charge $240 a test and steal people’s DNA and personal information.

At one site in Louisville, Kentucky, scammers dressed as doctors were offering fake coronavirus tests out of a convenience store parking lot in exchange for $240. They were also collecting credit card information and people’s social security numbers, equipping them to steal their victims’ identities.

Local authorities told the NYT that 100 people fell prey to the scheme before the scammers fled

Metro Council President David James and Louisville advocates have been hunting down who they call fake COVID-19 testers, reported WDRB.

“It’s really Medicaid fraud, is what it actually is. There is no reason that you should spend $240 dollars for a COVID test,” James said. “And they’re using the same gloves on Person A that they used on Person B, that they used on Person C.”

The officials said the group may be from Illinois as they believe the scammers are the same people who claimed to test people’s DNA for diseases last year.

“They’re the scum of the Earth and they’re preying on the poorest of the poor, and I’m going to do everything in my power to get them the [explicit] out of Kentucky,” James said.
