Telecommunication and Posts Minister, Abdiweli Sheikh Abdilahi Sufi, has been diagnosed with Coronavirus.
He is the second cabinet member to have publicly confirmed that he is Covid-19 positive after his blood was examined.
The minister said in a twitter post that he voluntarily examined his blood for the deadly novel coronavirus after he has suspected of having signs related to Covid-19.
Abdiweli added that the public well being is his first priority and is part of the ongoing efforts to contain the spread of the deadly Covid-19.
Investment Minister, Mohamed Ahmed Awad, also publicly announced that he has contracted the deadly Covid-19 but added that he is in a stable condition.
The Coronvirus spread is on the increase in Somaliland which does not have a robust healthcare system in place.
The country does not have enough capital to upgrade its healthcare despite little aid channeled via the international agencies currently operating in the country.
