He said “This morning I woke up with a temperature and sore throat. I feel fine and will provide an update in due course. It is the policy of Queensland Health that anyone who tests positive is to be admitted into a hospital and I have complied with their advice.”

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s wife was also diagnosed with coronavirus. Prime Minister Trudeau had self-isolated after his wife developed symptoms for the deadly virus which has claimed lives of thousands across the globe. According to a statement issued by Trudeau’s communication director, Sophie Gregoire Trudeau developed mild symptoms and following the medical advice was put in isolation. The health professionals reached out to those who were in close contact with her.

Hollywood actor Tom Hanks and his wife, actress Rita Wilson had also tested positive for COVID-19. Hanks took to Twitter to make the announcement regarding his diagnosis. The couple then got medical attention and got tests done for coronavirus which came out to be positive. The Hanks were in Australia for production of Baz Luhrmann’s untitled Elvis Presley movie where Hanks is playing Presley’s manager, Colonel Tom Parker.

Fabio Wajngarten who serves as Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro’s communications secretary had accompanied the latter in his US trip and attended an official meeting with the US President Donald Trump. Reportedly, he had developed flu-like symptoms and was diagnosed with coronavirus. The same was confirmed by a second test. Wajngarten had earlier uploaded the photo of his meeting with Trump on Instagram along with the caption, “Make Brazil Great Again.”

Trump initially said, ” Let’s put it this way, I am not concerned.” However, the White House recently released a statement where Trump’s personal physician Sean Conley was quoted as saying, ” Last night, after an in-depth discussion with the President regarding COVID-19 testing, he elected to proceed. This evening, I received confirmation that the test is negative.”
