The general secretary of the PSE-EE, Idoia Mendia, has reported that she has been admitted to the Basurto hospital in Bilbao for pneumonia and positive in COVID-19.
“After a few days of fever and discomfort, I have gone to the Basurto Hospital and they have decided to admit me due to pneumonia and a positive on COVID-19,” said the socialist leader on social networks.
Mendia is married to the Deputy Mayor and Councilor for Mobility and Sustainability of the Bilbao City Council, Alfonso Gil, who reported last Tuesday that he was “isolated” because of COVID-19.
“I join the long list of those affected by this virus, but I know that soon I will be on the list of recovered,” said the secretary general of the PSE-EE in his message.
Mendia has indicated that all that remains is “to have patience and trust in the good work of the professionals of Osakidetza”.
