“My results on COVID-19 came back positive yesterday but my health condition is well and currently I am staying at home”, Hon. Michael Makuei Lueth finally speaks out in an interview with {John Tanza, VOA journalist} this evening.

Further more he said ““Yes, I am positive. I am informed that all the members of the former committee are positive,” Makuei told VOA’s South Sudan in Focus on Tuesday. “We are self-quarantined. Those of the diagnosing center are supposed to come and take the samples of the contact persons, starting with my family. But up to now, they have not reported.”  

Minister of Information and broadcasting Hon. Michael Makuei Lueth announced his latest test for Coronavirus that he was tested for Coronavirus and found positive. 

Also in his remark, Michael Makuei Lueth said no one is immune from this deadly virus called Corona.
He urged the General public to follow and respect the measures that the HLTF put in place to help minimize the spread of Coronavirus that include social distancing, wearing a mask every day. 
Michael Makuei Lueth is also calling on President Salva Kiir to review the restriction measures that was relaxed by the Taskforce last week.

It is also worthy of note that earlier the Vice-President of South Sudan, Riek Machar, who was part of a task force to fight coronavirus has announced that he is in self-isolation after testing positive for Covid-19.

Mr Machar said as several other members of the task force were infected a new team was taking over their work.

His wife, who is Defence Minister Angelina Teny, some bodyguards and other staff also have the virus.

Experts worry that decades of conflict has left South Sudan incapable of dealing with a surge in new infections.

So far South Sudan has recorded 236 cases of Covid-19 and four deaths.
