Mexico’s President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has said he tested positive for the coronavirus again amid the latest wave of infections in the country fuelled by the Omicron variant.
Lopez Obrador, who overcame the first bout of COVID-19 in early 2021, announced on Monday that he had tested positive for the virus and was experiencing mild symptoms.
“I inform you that I am infected with COVID-19 and although the symptoms are mild, I will remain in isolation and will only do office work and communicate virtually until I get through it,” tweeted Lopez Obrador, who received the AstraZeneca vaccine booster shot in December last year.
The announcement came hours after the 68-year-old president spoke to journalists during a news conference without wearing a mask while complaining of congestion he said was likely the flu, prompting accusations of irresponsible behaviour.
The positive result came shortly after two of Lopez Obrador’s cabinet secretaries, the heads of the environment and economy departments, reported they had also tested positive for the virus.
