Doctors report that Alberto Fernandez’s condition is stable
Two months after being vaccinated with the Russian Sputnik V vaccine, Argentine President Alberto Fernandez was diagnosed with a coronavirus.
In a series of tweets posted Friday night, Fernandez revealed that he had a fever and a slight headache prompting him to take the test.
“I have already isolated myself, following the current protocol and following the instructions of my personal doctor,” he said. “I contacted people I have met in the past 48 hours to assess whether they can be considered close contacts.”
An antigen test followed by a PCR test confirmed the diagnosis of COVID-19, Fernandez’s team of doctors said.
The 62-year-old leader remains “stable, asymptomatic, with parameters within normal limits,” they noted.
