In another related report, Nigerian music star, Davido, recently became a cause for concern for several of his fans on social media after some people he got in close contact with people who tested positive for the novel and deadly coronavirus.

The coronavirus pandemic is a disease that is raging all over the world as even developed countries are struggling to contain it and also reduce the death rates as much as possible.

This is particularly difficult because there is no vaccine for the disease yet. People have been advised to stay at home and to also practise social distancing.

Davido was advised to take another test to ascertain if he has the coronavirus after his first test came out negative despite him being in contact with people who have tested positive.

The Risky crooner has now taken to social media via his Twitter page to reveal that the result for his second test is out and that he is still not infected with the virus.
