CAF president tests positive for COVID-19
Addis Ababa, October 30, 2020 (FBC) -Confederation of African Football (CAF) president Ahmad Ahmad has become the latest senior global football figure to test positive for COVID-19 days after his FIFA counterpart Gianni Infantino.
“This morning I’ve been declared positive to COVID-19,” Ahmad said in a brief statement. “I have mild symptoms, but I’m well. I am now in isolation for 14 days at least.”
Infantino made a similar revelation on Tuesday and is self-isolating for 10 days, FIFA has confirmed.
Malagasy-born Ahmad, 60, is hoping to retain his position as CAF president at their elective congress in March, according to Reuters.
