Oct. 16, 2020
Brussels, Belgium | XINHUA | European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen started to self-isolate on Thursday after a workmate tested positive for COVID-19, she said on twitter.
“I have just been informed that a member of my front office has tested positive to COVID-19 this morning,” she tweeted on Thursday afternoon.
“I myself have tested negative. However as a precaution I am immediately leaving the European Council to go into self-isolation,” she tweeted.
She was attending the summit of heads of state and government of the EU member states in Brussels when she made the announcement.
It was her second self-isolation in just two weeks. On Oct. 5, she had to self-isolate after being informed that she had contact with a COVID-19 patient during her trip to Portugal.
