The Minister of Health, Olivier Véran, has tested positive for Covid-19, his entourage announced on Thursday.
The Minister of Health, Olivier Véran, tested positive for Covid Thursday at midday after “the appearance of mild symptoms”, his entourage told AFP. “As the protocol requires, being vaccinated three doses, he will respect isolation and continue to work from the private quarters of his ministry, where he resides,” added his services.
According to his entourage, Olivier Véran, present Wednesday morning at the Council of Ministers, had been warned in the afternoon to be in contact via the “All Anti Covid” application and had undergone a first negative test. “Given the appearance of mild symptoms this afternoon, he tested again, positive this time. He also confirmed his self-test with a positive antigen test,” said the same source.
Olivier Véran spoke Thursday morning at the platform of the National Assembly, for the adoption of the resolution carried by LFI deputies recognizing endometriosis as a long-term disease (ALD).
Above all, he had to carry the bill establishing the vaccine pass, voted on the night of Wednesday to Thursday at first reading in the Senate and currently studied in a joint committee (CMP) at the Palais Bourbon, so that deputies and senators try to agree on a common version of the text.
