Family updates the public on Lagu’s health status after contracting Covid-19
Dec 20, 2020 (Thessherald)–The family of South Sudan’s veteran politician and former Vice-President of Sudan Joseph Lagu gives an update on his health condition after contracting the Coronavirus in the UK.
“Lt. Gen Joseph Lagu (former Vice President of Sudan and Special Presidential Advisor in South Sudan) has been admitted to hospital for tests and has since tested positive for coronavirus. He was taken to a London hospital in the early hours of Thursday 17 December with unusual new symptoms. Joseph has a slight temperature, but he is breathing well and is currently stable,” the family said in a statement.
“His wife, Amna Lagu had previously tested positive for coronavirus. She was admitted to a London hospital a few hours before Joseph in the evening of Wednesday 16 December. Amna is poorly but stable and is being given the best care possible.”
“Have no doubt Joseph Lagu is a fighter. He is the father of a nation. Amna Lagu is a formidable matriarch and a survivor. Their situation is currently being closely monitored by their loving children.”
In a statement, the Joseph Lagu Foundation urges members of the public not to spread unnecessary rumors in this particular movement where the family needs support, comfort and words of encouragement.
“We ask you to please respect the family’s privacy at this time so that they can focus on Joseph and Amna’s wellbeing. We will keep you updated through this page.”
