STOCKHOLM, Nov 5 (Reuters) - Sweden’ prime minister, Stefan Lofven, said on Thursday he was self-isolating after he found out that a person close to him had met someone who was later confirmed to have COVID-19.
Lofven said the person close to him, who was not identified, had tested negative but that on medical advice, he and his wife would self-isolate.
“I am distance-working. We feel fine and do not have any symptoms,” he said in a statement on Facebook.
He said he and his wife would take a coronavirus test as quickly as possible. (Reporting by Stockholm Newsroom; editing by Niklas Pollard)
