The Canadian Prime Justin Trudeau is self-isolating after his wife Sophie Gregoire Trudeau developed flu-like symptoms and got tested for coronavirus disease.

“I have some personal news to share today. Sophie recently returned from a speaking event in the UK, and last night she was experiencing mild flu-like symptoms. She‘s feeling better, but following the advice of our doctor she is self-isolating as we wait on COVID-19 test results,” Trudeau said in a statement.

The statement further added “Out of an abundance of caution, I too will be self-isolating & self-monitoring until we get Sophie‘s results back.”

Originated for the first time in China last year, the public health officials around the world have recorded more than 127,000 confirmed cases of coronavirus.

According to reports, the authorities in Canada have confirmed 103 positive cases of coronavirus and one death so far.

The disease has reportedly killed around 4,700 people across the globe.
