ramaphosaNews24 reports that Minister in the Presidency Mondli Gungubele indicated on Monday that President Cyril Ramaphosa remained in good spirits and was recovering, with "mild symptoms", following a Covid-19 infection.

Ramaphosa, who is fully vaccinated, was diagnosed with the infection on Sunday and is currently in self-isolation in Cape Town. He has decided to delay a booster vaccine shot that he was scheduled to receive this week. "President Cyril Ramaphosa appreciates the well wishes he is receiving from various quarters following his Covid-19 positive result. The president reiterates his call to everyone in the country to be vaccinated, as vaccination dramatically reduces the chances of serious illness, hospitalisation, or death," Gungubele stated. While Ramaphosa is isolating this week, Deputy President David Mabuza is acting president. Mabuza is expected to chair a National Coronavirus Command Council meeting on Tuesday.
