Zimbabwean Afro-Pop songbird Ammara Brown has placed herself under self-quarantine for 14 days as a precautionary measure after arriving back in the country on Wednesday from South Africa.
Ammara was a guest judge at the Old Mutual Amazing Voices show held in Johannesburg with the objective of unearthing singing talent across gospel, pop and rhythm and blues genres.
Speaking to NewsDay on Thursday, Ammara’s manager, Chido Musasiwa, said that the musician was in self-quarantine as a precautionary measure as South Africa has recorded an increased number of COVID-19 cases. Musasiwa said:
We have placed Ammara in self-quarantine for 14 days where we will be assessing her health and temperature, but this is just a precautionary measure because she was in South Africa which is recording high cases of coronavirus.
It’s not that we are suspecting that she might have come into contact with infected people, but it’s just a precautionary measure because where she was, she was safe and there were a few people living with her, but it’s just that at airports there are a lot of people. And after the 14 days we will see what happens.
South Africa has the highest number of coronavirus cases in Africa after confirmed cases surpassed the 700 mark this week.
