This is the first time that Covid-19 virus infection has been reported Brussels among officials.
After it became known that someone in Gabriel’s team had a positive Covid-19 test, the commissioner for research and innovation announced on Monday that she would follow a self-isolation regime.
“After the first negative Covid-19 test on Monday, my second test is positive,” said Gabriela, who represents Bulgaria at the European Commission (EC).
Alongside Paris and Madrid, the Belgian capital, where the EC is based, is one of the European cities hardest hit by the Covid-19 outbreak.
EK prezidente Urzula fon the Leiena went to self-isolation for a short time on Monday after close contact with an infected person, but her two tests have already been negative.
