French President Emmanuel Macron is free from the effects of Covid-19

French President Emmanuel Macron is free from the effects of Covid-19, his office said on Thursday, a week after the coronavirus tested positive.
The Elysee Palace added that the president, who was in self-isolation at an official residence near Paris from where he held meetings remotely, no longer wanted to stay in quarantine.
The statement said that Macron “shows no symptoms this stage” and “the isolation of the President can therefore end after seven days”
During his self-isolation, Macron remained in charge of “of the main issues of current affairs of our country” and would continue to do so in the coming hours and days, it said.
Macron, who last Thursday tested positive for the virus, displaying signs of exhaustion, coughing and muscle aches, promised regular health updates.
His office announced, “signs of improvement” for the first time on Wednesday, having identified the health of the 43-year-old president as “stable” in previous statements.
The French authorities are worried that the Christmas holiday season could see a net increase in infections after the country’s overall death toll in Covid increased to almost 62,000 this week.
Authorities said late Wednesday that in the previous 24 hours, nearly 15,000 new cases and 278 new deaths had been recorded.
On Sunday, a vaccination campaign is to begin, with health workers and older individuals among the first to get jabs, the government said.
The EU gave the Pfizer-BioNTech coronavirus vaccine a green light on Monday, paving the way for the first inoculations to commence shortly after Christmas across 27 countries.
The vaccine was approved for use in France by the French HAS Health Authority on Thursday.
