On Thursday night, Canadian and British news outlets reported that Canada’s leftist Prime Minister’s personal life has been touched by an international pandemic. (Watch video below this report.)
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s spouse, 44-year-old Sophie Grégoire Trudeau, was reported to have tested positive for highly contagious coronavirus, his spokespeople announced to reporters covering the coronavirus in Canada, the United States and other Western Hemisphere nations.
Earlier on the same day the PM office announced she was being tested. She had complained of feeling mild flu-like symptoms, including a low-grade fever, on Wednesday night.
Mrs. Trudeau had just returned from a British Charity event and a fundraising concert in the United Kingdom, an affair that put thousands of attendees in close quarters.
While Prime Minister Trudeau, 48, has not developed any of the virus’ symptoms and tested negative for the virus, he still must be kept isolation for a minimum of 14 days.
Trudeau promised the Canadian people that he will continue his duties as usual even while isolated. He also promised his people that he will still hold meetings using closed-circuit television, Skype, secured telephones and telephone lines, and will have security officers “sweep” his temporary office and living quarters to prevent listening devices being installed.
“Canadians – including their political leaders — are reacting to the coronavirus without the politically-divisive anti-Trump strategy being used by the Democratic Party and their media mob in the politicalization of the coronavirus to hurt the economy and strike at President Donald Trump’s popularity,” said former Thaddeus Springer, a former police detective who specialized in bio-weapons.
Also, Trudeau announced $800 million to help mitigate the effects of the coronavirus outbreak in Canada
As of this report, Canadian authorities reported 138 coronavirus cases in Canada as of Thursday.
