The World Health Organization (WHO) chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said late Sunday that he was self-quarantining after someone he had been in contact with examined COVID 19 positive but stressed he had no symptoms.
“I have been identified as a contact of someone who has tested positive for #COVID19,” Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus stated in a tweet.
“I am well and without symptoms but will self-quarantine over the coming days, in line with @WHO protocols, and work from home,” Tedros added.
Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has been at the forefront of the United Nations health agency’s efforts to battle the COVID pandemic which has claimed nearly 1.2 million lives and affected over 46 million people worldwide since emerging in China late last year.
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.”
