The French Prime Minister is positive about the coronavirus-The Belgian Prime Minister is in quarantine

The Prime Minister of France Jean Castex tested positive for Covid-19. A few hours earlier, he had entered self-isolation, after his 11-year-old daughter was also diagnosed positive in the disease.

Castex was in Brussels this morning, where he met with his Belgian counterpart, Alexander de Croix. On Monday afternoon, he was scheduled to meet in Matinion with elected representatives of Guadeloupe to review the health situation in their region, along with Interior Ministers Geral Darmanen, Overseas Territories Sebastian Lecorny and Health Olivier. However, returning from Brussels, he learned that his daughter was ill and underwent a test, which was positive.

This is not the first time that the French Prime Minister has been isolated because he had contact with a Covid-19 case, but this is the first time he has been diagnosed with a positive case. He isolated himself in June when his wife tested positive. December 2020 was a “close contact” between President Emanuel Macron and, a few months earlier, Christian Pridom, president of the Tour de France, when they fell ill with Covid-19.
Castex will remain in solitary confinement for 10 days, but will continue to work.

At the same time, the Prime Minister of Belgium, Alexander de Croix, went into self-isolation.

He will be examined on Wednesday and will remain in solitary confinement until then, as will four of his government ministers who attended the Franco-Belgian security summit.
