The Department of Health confirmed last week that Minister Joe Phaahla has tested positive for COVID-19.
EWN reports that he had been tested after showing mild symptoms, and immediately self-isolated.
Spokesperson Foster Mohale said Phaahla would work from home for the next week. “He will continue to perform his official duties from home for seven days and all his planned contact meetings have been rescheduled and some will be done virtually. This is a reminder that the pandemic still remains among us and is still infectious.”
