The EU nation of 38 million people has 156 confirmed cases of COVID-19, including three deaths. It has shut its borders to foreign travellers and closed schools, among other precautionary measures.

“After a state forest employee with whom I had contact was found to have coronavirus yesterday, I went under quarantine and took the test,” the 29-year-old Wos said on Twitter.

“The test result was positive. I feel fine. I send my thanks to medical workers and express solidarity with everyone who’s ill,” the married father-of-one added.

Other infected global politicians include French Culture Minister Franck Riester, Spanish Equality Minister Irene Montero and Iranian Vice President Massoumeh Ebtekar.
