Globally big Leaders are infected through the coronavirus

Globally big Leaders are  infected through the coronavirus 

Sophie Grégoire Trudeau, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's wife, has screened novel coronavirus positively, becoming the newest in a series of high-profile individuals to get infected with the potentially deadly pathogen.
The prime minister's office said in a statement on Thursday that Grégoire Trudeau started experiencing a low-grade fever and other mild flu-like symptoms the day before, and was subsequently checked.
"The check has returned positive," it said.
                                                                               "She feels well, takes all the necessary precautions, and her symptoms remain mild," the statement said, adding that the prime minister himself "without symptoms is in good health."According to the announcement, Grégoire Trudeau would isolate himself for 14 days along with the prime minister "[as] a precautionary step" together with the three children of the couple.
                                                                                                                     This said the isolation would not interfere with the duties of the prime minister as head of government and that "on the advice of doctors, he would not be checked at this point because he has no symptoms." In her own statement, the 44-year-old Grégoire Trudeau thanked the wishers, saying that while she is "experiencing unpleasant symptoms," she would soon be "back on my feet."
"Being at home in isolation is nothing compared to other families in Canada that might be going through this and even those facing more severe health issues," she said.
                                                                                                                       The prime minister spoke with President Trump by telephone on Thursday, and the two leaders addressed attempts to respond to the pandemic, with almost 135,000 confirmed infections worldwide and almost 5,000 deaths from the virus.
The Prime Minister's office said in a readout of the call: "The two leaders addressed the steps they are taking to protect their citizens ' health and safety and to foster economic resilience in response to the COVID-19 virus."
Grégoire Trudeau joins a growing list of prominent government officials and celebrities who have been diagnosed with the virus, which attacks the lungs and has proved highly infectious while it causes mild to no symptoms in most people. Older people, however, are especially vulnerable, including those with weakened immune systems.
 Thursday the Brazilian government said Fábio Wajngarten, President Jair Bolsonaro's communications officer, had tested positive for the virus. Weingarten was part of a delegation that travelled to the United States last weekend and met with Trump and Vice President Mike Pence at the president's Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida to worry that the president and vice president may have been contaminated. A statement by White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham said the president and vice president "nearly had any encounters with the person who tested positive and did not need testing at this time."
