South African President Cyril Ramaphosa has been quarantined after attending a charity event with just 35 guests, one of whom received a coronavirus.
Cyril Ramaphosa’s office said he was feeling well and would be fulfilling his responsibilities remotely, following the guidelines for quarantine.
The president attended a fundraising dinner on Saturday for the Adopt-a-School Foundation, a partner organization of the Cyril Ramaphosa Foundation.
“The event for 35 guests was held at the Johannesburg Hotel, where the guests of the foundation were the only people who were hosted at the institution,” said the Presidency.
“The event was strictly in line with the Covid-19 protocols on screening instructions, social exclusion, and wearing masks. As was the case with all the guests, the president himself took off his mask only at dinner and when addressing the guests. ”
However, the Admissions School Foundation advised guests at dinner on Tuesday that the guest had symptoms on Sunday.
The guest was tested on Monday and tested positive on Tuesday.
“The foundation was informed about this development and informed the guests about it yesterday,” the presidency said.
The announcement came hours after Cyril Ramaphosa unveiled a statue of ANC icon OR Tambo and the official opening of the Radisson hotel’s new conference center and in Ekurhuleni this morning.
The presidency said Ramafosa was regularly inspected by the SA military health service and examined himself at the sites where he was involved.
“The president is not showing any symptoms at the moment, if any symptoms occur, he will be tested in accordance with Covid-19 health advice.”
