Justin Trudeau’s wife tests positive for COVID-19
Sophie Grégoire Trudeau, the wife of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, has tested positive for coronavirus.

Trudeau’s communications director Cameron Ahmad confirmed the news in a statement posted to Twitter.

“Following medical advice, she will remain in isolation for the time being. She is feeling well, is taking all the recommended precautions and her symptoms remain mild,” read the statement.

Ahmad also posted a personal message from Sophie, who said she will be “back on my feet soon”.

It comes after Prime Minister Trudeau announced he was in self-isolation after Sophie returned from the UK with “mild flu-like symptoms”.

Trudeau announced the news over Twitter, but assured followers he will be “busy working from home”.

 

As of Thursday local time, Canada had 138 confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus, which is more than double the number from a week earlier.
