German Chancellor Angela Merkel has been placed under house quarantine, after it was revealed that she’d had contact with a medic that has since tested positive for coronavirus.
The news, which immediately made headlines, was confirmed by the government spokesman Steffen Seibert.
A doctor that vaccinated Merkel on Friday, against a bacterium that causes pneumonia, among other diseases, has himself tested positive for the virus, Seibert said in a statement, without revealing any further details about the medic.
“The chancellor has decided to immediately place herself under house quarantine,” he said, adding that Merkel is about to go through a series of coronavirus tests in the coming days, as just one test would be not be sufficiently indicative.
The chancellor will continue to work from home.
…Finally some good news! I’m starting to like this virus.
If it ` s true that Merkel is indeed infected, let us extend our heartfelt sympathies to the Coronavirus.
My best regards to all, Venus
