The president of the European Commission (EC), Ursula von der Leyen, reported this Monday that has been quarantined one day after holding a meeting with a person who has tested positive for Covid-19.

«I have been informed that I participated in a meeting last Tuesday with a person that yesterday tested positive by Covid-19, “he explained in a Twitter message.

The president of the EC recalled that last Thursday she tested negative for coronavirus and indicated that will be subjected to a new test this Monday.

Members of the Portuguese Council of State who met Von der Leyen last Tuesday in Cascais, including the president of Portugal and the prime minister, António Costa, are being analyzed by Covid after a participant has tested positive.

A growing list

Von der Leyen thus joins the growing list of members of the European institutions that have been forced in recent weeks to start a quarantine and to get tested of coronavirus after being in contact with an infected person.

The President of the European Council, Charles Michel, decided postpone the European summit which was initially going to be held at the end of September for a quarantine, after having been with a collaborator who tested positive for Covid-19.

Michel underwent a PCR test for coronavirus and on September 25 announced that the result was negative.

Also the Executive Vice-Presidents of the European Commission for the Economy, Valdis Dombrovskis, and in charge of the Green Pact, Frans Timmermans, as well as the Commissioner for Health, Stella Kyriakides, had to respect a preventive quarantine after having been in close contact with positive cases for Covid-19.
