MADRID (AP) – Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez said yesterday he has tested positive for COVID-19.
The leader of Spain’s Socialist party and of the country’s coalition government said in a Twitter post that he was cancelling his appearance at a Socialist event yesterday marking the beginning of the new political season after the summer recess.
Sánchez did not say whether he was feeling ill or whether he would cancel other engagements next week.
Sánchez last week attended the United Nations General Assembly in New York. He returned to Spain for an official event on Friday.
