GUATEMALA CITY (AP) — Guatemalan President Alejandro Giammattei said Friday he has tested positive for the new coronavirus, but he told a local radio station he feels well.
However, in a televised address to the nation, Giammattei looked a bit out of breath.
“My symptoms are very mild. Up to now, I have body aches, it hurt more yesterday than today, like a bad cold,” the president said. “I don’t have a fever, I have a bit of a cough.”
“I am busy working from home,” he said.
Giammattei, 64, has multiple sclerosis and uses canes to walk.
