French President Macron posted a selfie video on his social media account on the afternoon of the 18th local time. He said that he was in good condition and urged the French people to abide by epidemic prevention measures.
Macron said in the video that he still had fatigue, headache and dry cough symptoms that day, while ensuring that he would keep the public informed of his condition in time. Macron said that although he has been very careful, obeyed the epidemic prevention measures and has been strictly protected, he is still infected with the novel coronavirus.
This shows that the virus can infect everyone. He said that on the day of his diagnosis, more than 18,000 new confirmed cases were in France, and the epidemic resurfaced. During the end of the year festival, the people should be more vigilant and abide by epidemic prevention measures.
Macron was diagnosed with COVID-19 on the 17th, and then went to Versailles near Paris to quarantine and receive treatment. At present, including First Lady Bridget, the President of the French National Assembly, Ferran, government Prime Minister Castel, and several EU institutions and EU leaders are under quarantine.
