Macron in “stable” condition after positive Covid-19 test, says Élysée Palace

French President Emmanuel Macron’s condition is stable and the results of a medical examination are reassuring, the French presidency said on Saturday in an update on his coronavirus attack.

“The president’s medical condition is stable compared to Friday,” said Élysée Palace in a statement to Jean-Christophe Perrochon, the president’s chief physician.

“[Macron] presents the same symptoms of Covid-19 disease (fatigue, cough, stiffness) that do not prevent him from fulfilling his duties, says Perrochon.

The Élysée statement also said that the results of medical tests on Macron have been “calming”.

Macron said on Friday that he did well one day after testing positive for Covid-19, but worked at a slower pace than usual outside Paris.
