The chairperson of the African Union (AU) Commission Moussa Faki Mahamat on Friday disclosed that he is under quarantine, together with other AU staff member, after an AU staff member tested positive for COVID-19.
“I can confirm that one of my collaborators in my Office at the African Union (AU) Commission has tested positive for COVID19,” the chairperson of the 55-member pan-African bloc disclosed in a twitter post on Friday.
“The staff member is in a stable condition. As a precautionary measure, I am under quarantine as are some other collaborators in my office,” Mahamat added.
