- Iratxe García Pérez, head of the center-left Socialists & Democrats group in the European Parliament, said Saturday she’d tested positive for COVID-19.
“I will stay isolated at home the next days to recover,” the Spanish MEP wrote on Twitter, adding she was grateful to the public health system.
“No one is safe until everyone is. Vaccines save lifes!” she continued, encouraging people to get their jab.
García Pérez didn’t say where she would do her quarantine.
Belgium has recorded a seven-day average of 1,565 cases per million people, and 4 deaths per million people. More than 74 percent of the population is fully vaccinated in the country, but there are big gaps in vaccination rates among the different regions.
