Spanish PM Pedro Sanchez quarantines after contact with French President Emmanuel Macron

Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez speaks during a ceremony marking the 60th anniversary of the creation of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), at its headquarters in Paris, France.

Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez tested negative for COVID-19 on Thursday but will quarantine until December 24 after being in contact with French President Emmanuel Macron, who has contracted coronavirus, his office said.

Sanchez, who earlier on Thursday suspended all public activities, will take another test before the end of his self-isolation, it added.

Sanchez and Macron met on Monday in Paris. Video footage of Macron welcoming the Spanish prime minister at the Elysee Palace showed both wore masks and did not shake hands.
