Health Minister Jallah said the move was triggered by the realization that citizens were not coming out for testing. Israel’s health minister, who has had frequent contact with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, tested positive for COVID-19, Iran’s health ministry informed in April. Britain’s Health Secretary Matt Hancock announced that he tested positive for coronavirus on March 27, just 2 hours later the British PM tested positive. For many, the voluntary testing today by the health minister, the chief medical officer and key international players is long overdue. The Deputy Inspector General of Police for Administration, Ms. Sediatu Reeves, also tested positive.
