Prime Minister António Costa will be tested for coronavirus this morning as planned, amid news that the French president Emmanuel Macron has tested positive for the virus.

The prime minister is going to be tested this morning for the new coronavirus, which was scheduled several days ago today before travelling on Friday to São Tomé and Príncipe and Guinea-Bissau.

On Wednesday, António Costa was at the Elysee Palace, in Paris, with the French president, Emmanuel Macron, who has since tested positive for the new coronavirus.

Between Friday and Sunday, António Costa has scheduled official visits to São Tomé and Príncipe and Guinea, with meetings scheduled with the heads of State and Government of these two Portuguese-speaking countries.
