French Presidency: Macron’s health condition is stable
“The president’s health condition remains stable,” an official from the presidency told Reuters.
On Friday, French President Emmanuel Macron said that he is in good health a day after he was tested positive for the Coronavirus, but he practices his work less frequently while he is in recovery outside Paris.
Macron added that he will focus on France’s handling of the Corona epidemic and Britain’s exit from the European Union (Brexit), with the stalled negotiations between the two sides on a trade estimated at one trillion euros.
Macron said in a direct speech on Twitter, “I am working less often because of the virus, but I must continue to focus on the issues of highest priority such as our handling of the epidemic or, for example, the Brexit file.”
A diplomat said that Macron spoke several times on Friday with European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen to discuss the Brexit talks.
Macron, who was transferred Thursday evening to a presidential resort near the Palace of Versailles, said he did not expect his illness to develop into a dangerous stage.
“I would like to reassure you … I am in good health. I have the same symptoms as yesterday, especially a feeling of fatigue, headache, and a dry cough, like the hundreds of thousands of you who lived with the virus before or who are living with it today.
