PM tests positive for COVID

Prime Minister, Anthony Albanese, has announced he has contracted COVID-19.

In a brief statement, Mr Albanese said he took a PCR test this afternoon.

“This afternoon I had a routine PCR test which has returned a positive result for COVID-19. I will be isolating and will continue to work from home,” he said.

“I encourage anyone who is unwell to test and to take any extra precautions to keep their families and neighbours well.”

It’s the second time this year he has had the virus, after first testing positive in April during his election campaign.
