This is good news considering eNCA lost cameraman Lungile Tom to COVID-19 in May.

In a video shared by eNCA on Twitter, Shahan said he is now well enough to bring the channel’s viewers headlines in 60 minutes.

The Lead will broadcast from the Shahan’s home in Johannesburg, weekdays at 17:00.

After Shahan tested positive, eNCA said he would remain off-air and in self-isolation until the end of the stipulated 14-day period.

Watch the video of Shahan announcing that he is back on air:

eNCA anchor Shahan Ramkissoon is part of a team based in the channel’s Johannesburg office isolation studio that was set up eight weeks ago as part of the broadcaster’s disaster management plan.

The studio was set up in accordance with COVID-19 protocols to help minimise risk and manage the number of staff members working in a single area.

eNCA says the isolation studio is completely removed from the channel’s main broadcast area, and its operations have not been impacted.

All staff members on the affected shift who are based in the isolation studio were sent home to self-isolate.

Following news Shahan had tested positive for COVID-19, eNCA said it was undertaking the necessary track and tracing process to identify potentially exposed staff members.

The channel said it has initiated further measures to protect its employees, including the addition of separator screens inside the studios operating rooms.

The channel also pledged to continue to monitor the health of affected employees.
