Covid-19: South Africa's President Goes Into Self-quarantine

South Africa's President Cyril Ramaphosa has gone into self-quarantine, according to a statement from the presidency.

This is after a guest at a dinner attended by the president on Saturday tested positive for Covid-19.

The fundraising dinner hosted by the Adopt-a-School Foundation was attended by 35 guests at a hotel in the commercial hub of Johannesburg.

"The president is showing no symptoms at this time and will, in line with Covid-19 health advice, be tested should symptoms manifest," the statement said.

"The president will perform his duties remotely and will observe the guidelines that apply to self-quarantine."

The infected guest exhibited symptoms on Sunday and was tested on Monday before receiving a positive result on Tuesday.

All the guests at the dinner were notified about the case on Tuesday.

"The event adhered stringently to Covid-19 protocols and directives on screening, social distancing and the wearing of masks... the president himself removed his mask only when dining and addressing the guests," the statement from the president's office said.
