World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said last Nov. 1 that he is in self-quarantine after being identified as a contact of someone who tested positive for COVID-19.

“I have been identified as a contact of someone who has tested positive for COVID-19,” Tedros said on Twitter.

Tedros added that he is in self-quarantine “over the coming days” despite feeling “well and without symptoms.”

“It is critically important that we all comply with health guidance. This is how we will break chains of COVID-19 transmission, suppress the virus, and protect health systems,” Tedros added.

The total number of COVID-19 cases worldwide has reached 46.4 million while the total number of deaths has reached 1.2 million.
