FRANKFURT – European Central Bank President Christine Lagarde tested positive for COVID-19, she said in a tweet Thursday.
“This morning I tested positive for COVID-19. I am vaccinated and boosted, and my symptoms are thankfully reasonably mild. I will work from home in Frankfurt until I am fully recovered,” the tweet reads. “There is no impact on the ECB’s operations.”
The ECB has its regular Governing Council meeting, followed by her press conference, next Thursday. Lagarde didn’t share any details on how this meeting will be conducted.
