Bolivia’s interim President Jeanine Anez announced on Thursday that she has tested positive for coronavirus. “I’ve tested positive for COVID-19, I’m fine, I will work from isolation,” she tweeted.
The 53-year-old said in a video on Twitter that she would remain in quarantine for 14 days before taking another test. Anez becomes the second South American president in a matter of days to contract the coronavirus after Brazil’s Jair Bolsonaro announced his positive result on Tuesday.
