French PM Jean Castex self-isolating after wife tests positive for COVID-19

French Prime Minister Jean Castex is reportedly self-isolating after his wife tested positive for COVID-19.

The prime minister is isolating for seven days, his office said, according to Reuters.

Castex had received his first shot of the AstraZeneca vaccine on 19 March and he tested negative to COVID-19 on Wednesday.
