EU Parliament President goes into quarantine

9th October 2020

The EP said the president, David Sassoli, currently has no symptoms but came in contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19

European Parliament President David Sassoli has entered into quarantine after coming into contact with a member of his team who tested positive.

On Thursday, Mr Sassoli tweeted that he was “fine” and had no symptoms, adding that he would remain in self-isolation until required while the necessary checks are carried out.

Politico reports a Parliament official who says that Mr Sassoli will be required to stay in self-isolation for eight to 10 days.

Mr Sassoli’s announcement comes days after the Commission President, Ursula von der Leyen, went into self-isolation following a meeting in Portugal where a person who tested positive for the virus was present. Ms von der Leyen has since tested negative for COVID-19.

Last month, European Council President Charles Michel postponed a leaders’ summit and also went into isolation following a positive test by a security officer who he had been in close contact with.
