The minister disclosed this at a media briefing to give update on what the government, through the Presidential Task Force for the Control of COVID–19 is doing to end the spread of the epidemic.

Reacting to a question on whether he and some of his colleagues had gone for test after the reports that they got close to one or two index cases, Mohammed responded in the affirmative.

“I did my test and the report came out this morning that I am negative and that is why I am here to address you.

“Every member of the presidential task force went for test, however, I am not at liberty to tell you their status.

“My own result was given to me personally just like every other person,” he said.
