Guterres in isolation after contact with COVID-positive person

United Nations, SANA- Diplomatic sources reported that the UN Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, has put himself in isolation for a few days last night, after he had contact with an official in the international organization, who later turned out to be infected with the Coronavirus.

The AFP quoted sources as saying that Guterres, aged 72, has canceled all his attendance obligations, as he was supposed to arrive this evening as the guest of honor for the United Nations Press Association at its annual ceremony in Manhattan.

And on Thursday, he was scheduled to participate in a meeting of the UN Security Council, which will focus on the challenges of terrorism and climate change.

A few days ago, UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric announced that Guterres had finally received his third vaccine dose against the Coronavirus.
