Emmanuel Macron no longer shows symptoms of Covid-19, will end self-isolation – Elysee palace
French President Emmanuel Macron no longer exhibits any symptoms of Covid-19, and will now be able to exit his seven days of self-isolation, the Elysee office announced on Thursday.

During his quarantine, Macron, 43, was working from his official residence in Versailles, outside Paris, where he held virtual meetings with officials. For now, he will end his self-isolation “In accordance with the health protocol.”

The president will also be making a Christmas public address, concerning the importance of anti-coronavirus measures like social distancing, mask wearing and proper room ventilation.

The Elysee also conveyed Macron's happy holidays wishes to the French people, saying that he was counting on “each and everyone” to stand together against the pandemic.

Macron tested positive for the novel coronavirus a week ago, which prompted a fairly massive track-and-tracing effort across France and the European Union, following his numerous meetings with officials.
