And the Austrian minister, Alexander Schallenberg; The Belgian Minister, Sophie Wilmes, sat next to each other during a collective breakfast at a meeting of the European Union’s Foreign Affairs Council, Monday, in Luxembourg.
A spokeswoman for the Austrian Foreign Ministry said in a statement, “It is suspected that Schallenberg may have been infected (with the infection) in the Foreign Affairs Council in Luxembourg on Monday,” and confirmed that he had not shown any symptoms and was examined routinely.
Wilmis said, on Saturday, that she was infected with the virus a day after she was subjected to self-quarantine, with symptoms suspected of being associated with Corona.
She said the infection may have occurred “within my family’s circle, given the precautions taken outside my home.”
On Friday, the German Foreign Minister, Heiko Maas, tested negative. And Swedish Foreign Minister Anne Linde will be working from home until her negative result.
The Austrian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman said that the only bilateral meeting of Schallenberg in Luxembourg was with his Irish counterpart, Simon Coveney, and she confirmed the implementation of social distancing measures and that Ireland would be informed of the Austrian minister’s positive result.
She added that the minister also attended a cabinet meeting, on Wednesday, where the participants wore masks. The chancellor’s office, Sebastian Kurtz, said cabinet ministers were tested on Saturday with all negative results.
The Austrian Cabinet lived in an atmosphere of panic less than two weeks ago, when a colleague close to Kurtz was confirmed to have the virus.
