The former President of the Generalitat de Catalonia, Jordi Pujol, and his wife, Marta Ferrusola, have tested positive for Covid.
DUE to their age, 90 and 85 respectively, the couple are both at high risk and are currently isolating at their home.
Sources close to the family said they have coronavirus but are “not serious”.
The last time the Pujol family made headlines was in August 2020, when Ferrusola fell down a staircase at their second home in Queralbs and ended up in ICU in a serious condition.
Days later, sources reported that she was “on the mend” after being operated on “for fractures” at Vall d’Hebron Hospital in Barcelona.
