The infected ministers who were part of a high-level task force on coronavirus include Michael Makuei, Minister of Information and Communication.
All ten ministers who are in good health, according to the government, have gone into self-quarantine for fourteen days, the incubation period for Covid-19.
Riek Machar, the first Vice President, his wife, and a number of his staff and bodyguards were tested positive for coronavirus on May 13.
Reports that alleged President Salva Kiir, who was also a member of the task force, had been infected with the disease were dismissed by Makuei as untrue. The disease has infected four-hundred and eighty-one people and claimed four lives in the East Africa country.
Moreover, South Sudan whose five-year civil war erupted soon after it gained independence in 2011 reported on Thursday that hundreds of civilians, including three aid workers, were killed in a series of tribal clashes.
