Olaf Scholz tests positive for COVID-19

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz has tested positive for COVID-19.

A government spokesman announced that Scholz has mild cold symptoms and is isolating in the chancellor’s apartment in the Federal Chancellery.

“This week’s public appointments will be canceled. The chancellor wants to attend internal appointments and the scheduled meeting with the prime ministers of the federal states virtually,” a chancellery statement said.

Scholz just returned from a two-day trip to the Persian Gulf region, where he signed a gas deal with the United Arab Emirates.
