Bosnian Prime Minister, Zoran Tegeltija, has tested positive for coronavirus
The 59-year-old Prime Minister of Bosnia, in post since December, is isolating at home with mild symptoms, according to officials. Other cabinet members who have been in contact with him in recent days are also in quarantine.
Since the start of the pandemic, Bosnia has recorded 1,457 deaths and 59,427 cases, but Friday, November 6 saw the country report a record 49 deaths and 28,000 active cases.
He is the latest in a long line of world leaders who have contracted the virus, including Donald Trump and Boris Johnson.
Director General of the World Health Organization, who himself is self-isolating after coming into contact with someone who has the virus, tweeted:
“It is critically important that we all comply with health guidance. This is how we will break chains of Covid-19 transmission, suppress the virus, and protect health systems. My WHO colleagues and I will continue to engage with partners in solidarity to save lives and protect the vulnerable. Together!”
