Cyril Ramaphosa, President of South Africa, has tested positive for Covid-19

South African President Cyril Ramaphosa is being treated for minor Covid-19 symptoms after testing positive on Sunday, according to the presidency’s office.

“President Ramaphosa says his personal infection should serve as a wake-up call to everyone in the country to get vaccinated and stay watchful against infection. Vaccination is still the greatest way to avoid serious disease and hospitalization “According to the statement.

According to the presidency, Ramaphosa “began feeling sick after leaving the State Memorial Service in honor of former Deputy President FW de Klerk in Cape Town earlier today.”

He is, however, “in good spirits” and is being monitored by the South African National Defence Force’s South African Military Health Service.

South Africa, where scientists discovered the novel Omicron form, has now entered the pandemic’s fourth wave. A little more than a quarter of the country has been fully vaccinated, with an additional 5% partially vaccinated.

Ramaphosa, who is completely vaccinated, recently returned from a tour to West Africa. According to his office, when he returned to Johannesburg on December 8, he tested negative for Covid-19. The President is currently in self-isolation in Cape Town.
