VERSAILLES, YVELINES, FRANKREICH18. DEZEMBER 2020QUELLE: TWITTER / @EMMANUELMACRONEINSCHRÄNKUNGEN: KEIN WEITERVERKAUF / NO RESALENUR REDAKTIONELLE VERWENDUNG1. Split screen Emmanuel Macron: 'Good morning, it is Friday and I wanted to speak to you because as you know, yesterday morning, I tested positive at Covid 19. After experiencing the first symptoms, I took the test, and after testing positive, I immediately isolated myself, as the sanitary rules require us to do. I registered on 'Tous anti-Covid' (the tracking and tracing app, editor's note), finally I recorded the code of this test, so that the application could report it to all the contact cases it had identified, and the Élysée called all the contact cases we knew of and that I had met during the previous 48 hours. Obviously, I had seen many politicians, members of the government, international leaders, also members of my close security, or relatives and family members. And so all the contact cases were called, went into isolation and did tests. I wanted to thank you for all the messages of support, sympathy and solidarity that you have sent me, I wanted to reassure you, I am fine, I have the same symptoms as yesterday, i.e. fatigue and headaches, dry cough, like hundreds of thousands of you who have had to live with this virus or who are living with it today. I will report to you every day on the evolution of the disease, of this virus. There is normally no reason for it to progress badly, but I am under medical supervision and I will report to you in a totally transparent manner. As for the rest, I obviously continue to manage the day-to-day business in relation to the Prime Minister, the government and my teams. I have an activity that is also somewhat slowed down because of the virus, but I continue to deal with the priority files, whether it is the epidemic and its management for our country, or for example the Brexit file.'
