WHO Chief ‘Identified As Contact Of Someone COVID-19 Positive’; In Self Isolation

Geneva: The World Health Organization (WHO) director general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said late on Sunday that he was self-isolating after someone he had been in contact with tested COVID-19 positive but stressed that he had no symptoms.

“I have been identified as a contact of someone who has tested positive for #COVID19,” Tedros tweeted.

“I am well and without symptoms but will self-quarantine over the coming days, in line with @WHO protocols, and work from home,” he added.

COVID-19 has taken away nearly 1.2 million lives and infected over 46 million people across the globe since emerging in China late last year.

Tedros stressed, “it is critically important that we all comply with health guidance.”

“This is how we will break chains of #COVID19 transmission, suppress the virus, and protect health systems.”
