Botswana President, Mokgweetsi Masisi, has quarantined himself after an official working closely with him tested positive for Covid-19, a government statement says.
Some other people in the president’s inner circle are also self-isolating, it adds.
The government encourages people to continue taking precautions in order to prevent the spread of the virus.
The country of 2.25 million people has so far recorded 227 cases of the virus and one death.
