The presidential candidate of Chega had a negative result for the new coronavirus this Tuesday and will resume the election campaign program as early as Wednesday, also participating in the plenary session of the Assembly of the Republic.
“It was negative and the health authorities do not consider any additional situation necessary. I will return tomorrow [quarta-feira] the campaign and I will be in the debate on the state of emergency, in the morning, in the parliament “, said André Ventura to the agency Lusa.
The leader of the newly formed extreme right-wing parliamentary party had been on prophylactic isolation on Monday after it became known that the re-candidate for head of state, Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, had had a positive analysis of SARS-Cov-2, which causes covid-19, a week after both starred in a televised debate.
In a private laboratory in Lisbon, Ventura was subjected to a PCR (polymerase chain reaction) test, that is, through the collection of samples with swabs in the throat and nostrils to detect the presence of molecules of the new coronavirus.
Due to the self-imposed confinement, the national-populist leader canceled the agenda, missing the parade and speech planned today for Évora.
On Wednesday, the Chega caravan itinerary contemplates the districts of Santarém and Portalegre: at 15:00, a speech at the Jardim da República bandstand, followed by the inauguration of the candidacy headquarters in the Scalabitan city and at 22: 00, a rally in the large auditorium of the Center for the Performing Arts of Portalegre (CAEP).
