A few days after he isolated himself because his four-year-old daughter had COVID-19, Deputy Prime Minister Genevieve Gilbold announced on Wednesday that she too had contracted the disease.
“Last Sunday, my daughter got Kovid-19 positive. I cared for her and had symptoms on Monday, confirmed by a positive test yesterday. So I will be alone till Saturday as per the public health guidelines, ”she said on Twitter on Wednesday.
Thus, the Quebec Premier, Franకోois Legalt, and the Quebec Deputy Premier, Genevieve Gilbolt, were both exposed to COVID-19 in less than a week.
However the government made significant efforts to prevent such a situation from occurring at the beginning of the epidemic. In particular, two teams of ministers turned up in the Blue Room to answer questions from journalists.
At a time when many Quebec elected officials were suffering with Kovid-19, especially in the Coalition Avenir Quebec, the Genevieve Gilbolt announcement also came.
