Angelina Teny resumes her official duties today having recovered from COVID-19, an official statement said.
Angelina and her husband, Vice President Riek Machar went into self-isolation in Juba three weeks ago after both tested positive for the novel coronavirus.
“The First Vice President, H.E. Dr Riek Machar Teny-Dhurgon, and the Minister of Defense and Veterans Affairs, H.E. Madam Angelina Teny, have both been discharged today (Saturday) after fully recovered from the Coronavirus (COVID-19),” a statement from Machar’s office said.
According to the statement, the two government officials have been discharged after the second coronavirus confirmation tests conducted on them returned negative.
“The two leaders are therefore expected to resume their daily active public office on Monday, 8 June 2020,” the statement reads in part.
