WHO chief Tedros to quarantine after contact gets COVID-19

The head of the World Health Organization says he will self-quarantine after being identified as a contact of a person who tested positive for COVID-19

GENEVA — The head of the World Health Organization says he will self-quarantine after being identified as a contact of a person who tested positive for COVID-19.

In what have become twice-weekly WHO news conferences, Tedros and other leaders of the health agency have generally opted not to wear protective masks, insisting that they have taken other precautions such as physical distancing and ensuring good air circulation in the vast conference room where the briefings take place.

Officials at WHO Europe in Copenhagen, however, regularly wear masks during their weekly news conferences in an effort to send a signal to viewers about precautions to take.
