WHO Director-General Dr Tedros Practises Self-Isolation

The director of the World Health Organization (WHO) announced via Twitter that he will go into self-quarantine after coming into contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19. Although WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has self-isolated himself, he stressed that he is feeling well, and has no symptoms. 

He took to Twitter and wrote: “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 Adhanom Ghebreyesus also reiterated that all of us should comply with the health guidelines, in order to break the chains of COVID-19.

“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.”
