The Director-General of the World Health Organisation (WHO) Tedros Ghebreyesus, seems to have been exposed to COVID-19 and is now self-isolating.
Mr Ghebreyesus announced this in a series of tweet on his verified Twitter handle, @Dr.Tedros.
He tweeted: “I’ve been identified as a contact person of someone who has COVID-19 symptoms, I am well and without symptoms but will self-quarantine over the coming days and self-quarantine from home.
“My colleagues and I at WHO will continue to engage with partners in solidarity to save lives and protect the vulnerable.”
Ghebreyesus and other officials have been at the forefront of fighting the Covid-19 pandemic since it broke out early in the year.
