A few hours after holding a meeting with President Uhuru Kenyatta, the United Nations Deputy Secretary-General, Mrs Amina Muhammed, has tested positive for COVID-19.
Amina took to social media where she confirmed testing positive for the deadly disease.
Fortunately, Amina noted that she is among those who received vaccines against the disease.
She went further and revealed that she will be isolated from the rest of the public, and urged the world to continue embracing the vaccine so that everyone is protected
According to WHO, vaccinated individuals are in a better position to fight the killer virus as compared to those relying on natural immunity.
"I have tested positive for COVID-19. Grateful to be one of the privileged to have been vaccinated as I think of the millions still without protection. Let us continue to push for vaccines leaving no one behind. (1/2)
"Happy to continue online in isolation, my full commitment to the #TransformingEducation Pre-Summit. (2/2)," she noted.
Amina had earlier held a close meeting with President Uhuru Kenyatta and other African leaders, in which they discussed sustainable development and peace in Africa.
'Discussed efforts to advance sustainable development and durable peace in the East Africa region," she said.
Amina was a Nigerian minister before she was appointed to her current position at the UN.
