Sophie Gregoire Trudeau, wife of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, has tested positive for the novel corona virus.
Following medical advice, the prime minister’s wife is remaining in isolation for the time being.
The prime minister’s office says in a statement that she is feeling well, is taking all the recommended precautions and her symptoms remain mild.
It says the Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is in good health with no symptoms.
Trudeau announced earlier Thursday that he would be in isolation and working from home after his wife showed mild flu-like symptoms.
He also called off a planned appearance at the Public Health Agency of Canada and a scheduled meeting with his provincial, territorial and Indigenous counterparts in Ottawa.
Gregoire Trudeau thanked people who have reached out to her.
“Although I’m experiencing uncomfortable symptoms of the virus, I will be back on my feet soon,” she said in a statement.
“Being in quarantine at home is nothing compared to other Canadian families who might be going through this and for those facing more serious health concerns.”
She urged people to share the facts and take their health seriously.
Tom Hanks too
Also, Tom Hanks has announced that he and wife Rita Wilson have been diagnosed with coronavirus.
The 63-year-old Oscar-winning actor has been in Australia filming a forthcoming Elvis Presley biopic and said he started experiencing symptoms of the virus.
Hanks said he felt like he had a cold, while Wilson, also 63, suffered from chills. They have both subsequently tested positive for coronavirus.
