President Ramaphosa in self-quarantine

President Cyril Ramaphosa has begun a period of self-quarantine following the positive COVID-19 diagnosis of a guest at a dinner attended by the President on Saturday.

The President has wished the guest, who is receiving medical attention, a safe and speedy recovery. He wished other guests good health.

On Saturday, the President attended a fundraising dinner of the Adopt-a-School Foundation, which is a partner entity of the Cyril Ramaphosa Foundation.

The event for 35 guests was held at a Johannesburg hotel where Foundation guests were the only people hosted by the establishment.

The event adhered stringently to COVID-19 protocols and directives on screening, social distancing and the wearing of masks.

“As was the case with all guests, the President himself removed his mask only when dining and addressing the guests,” said the Presidency.

The Adopt-a-School Foundation advised dinner guests on Tuesday that a guest had shown symptoms on Sunday, and had been tested on Monday before receiving a positive result yesterday.

The Foundation became aware of this development and communicated this to guests yesterday, hours after the President had performed the unveiling of a statue of liberation icon OR Tambo and the official opening of a new Radisson hotel and convention centre in Ekurhuleni in the morning.

The President is screened regularly by the South African Military Health Service and subjects himself to screening at venues where he participates in engagements.

The President is showing no symptoms at this time and will, in line with COVID-19 health advice, be tested should symptoms manifest.

The President will perform his duties remotely and will observe the guidelines that apply to self-quarantine.

  2. Howdy! I understand this is sort of off-topic but I had to ask.
    Does managing a well-established website like
    yours take a massive amount work? I am completely new to writing a blog however I do write in my journal on a daily basis.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my personal experience and thoughts
    online. Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners.
    Thankyou! 0mniartist asmr

  3. I’m extremely impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your weblog.
    Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself?

    a nice blog like this one nowadays. asmr 0mniartist

  8. Hey! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website?
    I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another
    platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of
    a good platform.

  9. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point.
    You clearly know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something informative to read?

  10. Do you mind if I quote a few of your articles as long
    as I provide credit and sources back to your webpage?
    My blog site is in the very same area of interest as
    yours and my visitors would definitely benefit from some of the information you provide here.
