The wife of Canadian Prime minster Justin Trudeau has tested positive for the coronavirus after she developed flu-like symptoms, following a visit to the United Kingdom. At this time Justin Trudeau is not getting tested for the coronavirus as he has not yet developed symptoms, but is in self-quarantine and working from home. This is in spite of the fact that it has been widely reported that those who are infected with the virus might not show any symptoms, or be asymptomatic.
Following medical recommendations, Sophie Grégoire Trudeau was tested for COVID-19 today. The test came back positive. Also following medical advice, she will remain in isolation for the time being
Just over a month ago, Trudeau gave a passionate speech lambasting Canadians for alleged xenophobia as a result of the coronavirus. In the early weeks of the outbreak, many Canadians wanted to take the seemingly rational approach of shutting their borders to travelers from Wuhan China. Well, Trudeau was having none of that!

It really didn't have to be this way.
