South Sudan’s Vice President Riek Machar and his wife, Defense Minister Angelina Teny, have resumed their official duties on Monday after recovering from COVID-19, an official statement said.
Machar and Angelina 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 on Saturday.
