Speaking in an interview, he said he had not been admitted to the hospital as it has been alleged by some people.
In his tweet Dr. Tegegn said:
“I’d like to clarify a few false rumors about me being admitted after allegedly testing positive for #COVID19.
I did test and my results returned negative.
