Bolivia's interim president has COVID-19 but ‘feels strong’

Interim Bolivian President Jeanine Áñez says she has tested positive for the new coronavirus but feels strong and will continue working from isolation.

Her infection comes amid a spike in cases in the Andean nation, which has banned mass gatherings to try to limit the spread of the virus, which can cause the sometimes deady COVID-19 disease.

Áñez wrote on her Twitter account Thursday: “I feel good, I feel strong, I will continue to work virtually from my isolation."
