WHO Chief Self Isolates After Coming in Contact with COVID-19 Positive Person

WHO Chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has undergone self-quarantine measures after someone he had been in contact with tested positive for COVID-19.

WHO Chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has undergone self-quarantine measures after someone he had been in contact with tested positive for COVID-19.

“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,” announced Ghebreyesus on Twitter. 

Ghebreyesus however did not identify who was the individual that tested positive but cases have been rising in Geneva and local lockdowns have been implemented. 

Geneva has already declared a fresh state of emergency last Sunday and said it would go beyond Swiss national measures and shut down all bars, restaurants and non-essential shops after more than 1,000 new cases have been recorded locally.

Tedros expressed that it is critically important that everyone should comply with health protocols and guidelines.

Tedros added that he has not yet experienced any symptoms and that he would resume his duties while working from home.
