UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres tested negative for Covid-19 Thursday and ended two days of isolation prompted by exposure to a UN official with the coronavirus.

“Yes, negative,” his spokesman Stephane Dujarric said as the 72-year-old UN chief went into a UN Security Council meeting without speaking to reporters.

Guterres has received a two-dose vaccination and a booster shot.
