PARIS — French President Emmanuel Macron “no longer shows symptoms of COVID-19 to this day,” the French presidency announced on Thursday.
As provided for in the health protocol, the president will therefore be able to end his isolation, said Elysee in a statement.
French Prime Minister Jean Castex, after having a second test on coronavirus which proved negative, is ending his self-isolation, the prime minister’s office announced on the same day.
Macron started working in self-isolation from an official residence outside Paris last Thursday after testing positive for COVID-19.
Castex, considered “contact case” of Macron, also started a seven-day self-isolation last Thursday.
