Pablo Casado tests positive for coronavirus

The leader of the Popular Party, Pablo Casado, announced this Sunday that he has tested positive for coronavirus in an antigen test after being in contact with an infected person.

The president of the PP has no symptoms and will work in isolation this week, as he has explained.

He is not the only deputy who has tested positive in recent days. Last Monday, at the end of the year, the president of Congress, Meritxell Batet, explained that she had been infected and could not attend the plenary session on Tuesday, where the Budgets were approved. She was replaced by the first vice president of Congress, Alfonso Rodríguez Gómez de Celis.

Within the Popular Party, the mayor of Madrid, José Luis Martínez-Almeida, tested positive for COVID for the second time last Thursday and will also remain confined until his viral load decreases.
