Tested positive at Covid-19, Minister Marlène Schiappa goes into isolation

A new member of the government is affected by the Covid. After Agnès Pannier-Runacher, Barbara Pompili or Olivier Véran (in particular) in recent weeks, Marlène Schiappa has been tested positive in turn. “As a result, I am putting myself in isolation and continuing to carry out my duties remotely,” said the minister delegate in charge of citizenship on Twitter this Sunday morning.

With an incidence rate of 3,500 positive cases per 100,000 inhabitants over the past week in Paris, it is hardly surprising that some of the 40 ministers become infected with SARS-CoV-2.

5 or 7 days of isolation

According to the new rules which came into effect on January 3, a vaccinated person must self-isolate for one week. If an antigen test carried out on the fifth day is negative and if the person has not had symptoms for 48 hours, they can be released from isolation.

Marlène Schiappa was to debate this Sunday noon with the communist presidential candidate Fabien Roussel, in the program of the Grand Jury RTL-LCI-Le Figaro, reports the daily.
