President of Poland positive for COVID19


Polish President Andrzej Duda has joined the league of world leaders who have tested positive for Covid-19.

Mr. Duda, 48, said on Saturday in a recording published on Twitter that he was not experiencing coronavirus symptoms ‘but unfortunately, the test result is absolutely unambiguous.’

In a message on social media, the leader said: ‘I would like to apologize to all those who are exposed to quarantine procedures because of meeting me in recent days,

If I had had any symptoms of coronavirus, please, believe me, all meetings would have been canceled.’P

The president’s diagnosis comes amid a surge in confirmed cases of coronavirus-related deaths in Poland, a nation of 38 million that saw very low infection rates in the spring.
