Geneva: World Health Organisation Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus self-isolated himself after he was identified as a contact of someone who tested positive for the virus. Although the WHO Chief is self-quarantining, he stressed that he is feeling well, and has no symptoms.
He took to Twitter to announce about his self-quarantining. He 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."
"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."
