The Director-General of the World Health Organization, WHO, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, has said that he is in self-quarantine after someone he was in contact with tested positive for COVID-19.
Ghebreyesus in a tweet late on Sunday, added that he was symptom-free and feeling well.
“I have been identified as a contact of someone who has tested positive for #COVID19. I am well and without symptoms but will self-quarantine over the coming days, in line with @WHO protocols, and work from home,” Tedros said.
Tedros stressed on Twitter that “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,” he added.
