Spain Minister Tests Positive For Covid-19

Authorities say Spain’s equality minister has tested positive for coronavirus and has been quarantined with her partner, deputy prime minister and Podemos leader Pablo Iglesias.

The government said this in a statement on Thursday, saying,

“The minister (Irene Montero) is in a good condition and second deputy prime minister Pablo Iglesias is also in quarantine due to the situation.”

“This morning, all members of the government will undergo testing,” it added,

The announcement was made shortly after the government was to convene a special cabinet meeting to discuss an emergency plan of action to respond to the coronavirus crisis.

The statement said even though the meeting would go ahead, it would only include those ministers whose presence was essential, and all of Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez’s upcoming appointments would be conducted by video conference.
