Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi has tested positive for Covid-19 on Christmas Eve.
“MEC Lesufi felt unwell last night and struggled to breathe, which prompted him to go test for Covid-19 this morning and his results came back positive,” said Gauteng Department of Education Spokesperson Steve Mabona on Friday.
“In addition to being previously vaccinated, he is currently self-isolating in his home and feeling better subsequent to him experiencing Covid-19 symptoms before testing.
“We wish to advise people who had been in contact with MEC Lesufi prior to him testing positive for Covid-19 to either monitor themselves for any flu-like symptoms or go get tested accordingly.”
Panyaza is in isolation and is receiving treatment.
