Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said he is well and not showing symptoms but will be working from home as a precaution.
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 (@DrTedros) November 1, 2020
