Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced Monday that he had tested positive for Covid-19 but had no serious symptoms.
I feel fine, and will continue to work remotely this week, as per public health guidelines, said the Canadian leader, who recently received his third dose of the vaccine, on Twitter.
Justin Trudeau has once again called on Canadians to get vaccinated and receive their booster dose.
Mr. Trudeau is scheduled to speak late Monday morning at a press conference. But he will not be able to be physically present in the afternoon at the resumption of activities in the House of Commons in Ottawa, in front of which truckers and opponents of the health measures have been demonstrating for two days.
On Saturday, thousands of people and hundreds of trucks blocked the downtown core of Canada's federal capital in opposition to health measures and mandatory vaccination to cross the Canada-US border.
Justin Trudeau, 50, was in isolation because one of his children tested positive for Covid-19, according to Canadian media reports. He received his third dose of the vaccine in early January.
In March 2020, at the beginning of the pandemic, Justin Trudeau had to be placed in isolation for 14 days after his wife Sophie Grégoire Trudeau tested positive after returning from a trip to London.
