Yolanda Díaz tests positive for Covid-19. Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez has sent his well-wishes.
After testing positive the second Deputy Prime Minister and Labour minister Yolanda Díaz is in self-isolation. She has already cancelled her public engagements for the next few days. Díaz is said to be suffering from mild symptoms and she expects to be able to continue working whilst self-isolating.
Pedro Sánchez took to Twitter and wished her well. Sanchez said: “I hope you get through COVID-19 in a mild way and are fully recovered as soon as your isolation is over.”
Díaz has confirmed that after testing positive for the coronavirus she is only suffering from mild symptoms and that she is “fine.”
She has only just received the booster dose of the coronavirus vaccine. Díaz believes that the vaccine saves lives and protects others.
Taking to Twitter Díaz commented: “I will postpone my public agenda planned for the next few days and will continue working from confinement. Take care of yourselves.”

Glad to hear she is fine, however so much for a Vaccine that is severely reduced in it’s efficacy as it was only formulated for the old alpha strain, the Omicron strain is a mild strain, and healthy people need not worry with or without a Vaccine (look at south Africa), vaccines of this sort reduce your natural defences for 10-14 days after administration leaving your body open to infection. that why when you get innoculated before going to destinations needing such, there is a need for this to be administered well in advance before you travel for the same reason!
