UN refugee Chief tests Positive for COVID-19

The UN refugee chief said Wednesday that he had tested positive for Covid-19, after leading the first two days of the agency’s main annual meeting in person.

Filippo Grandi, who kicked off UNHCR’s week-long Executive Committee meeting in Geneva Monday, told participants via video-link that he would need to continue following the event from home.

“I am engaging with UNHCR’s Executive Committee from home as I have to isolate after testing positive to #COVID19,” he said in a tweet.

“I only have mild symptoms and hope to recover soon,” he added.

Grandi had for the past two days addressed delegates from the podium in the UN Assembly Hall in Geneva.

UNHCR’s executive committee is for the first time being held as a hybrid event this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Only limited numbers of delegates are allowed to attend physically, and distancing restrictions and mask requirements are in place. (PUNCH)

    Last year I accidentally came to know that I have contracted Hepatitis B. I actually don’t know how or when I contracted it but I have it, I was so depressed to know about it, but WorldHerbsClinic HBV HERBAL FORMULA was a blessing for me, I am thankful to everyone here. After three months of using their HBV HERBAL FORMULA, my test result came out negative..Please don’t neglect this testimony, because is 100% real. Thanks.
