Journalist Clara de Sousa, who moderated the debate over a week ago at SIC between Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa and André Ventura, is in preventive prophylactic isolation after it was known this Monday that the President of the Republic is infected with covid-19 .
In a brief note, SIC’s information department explains that the journalist will remain in isolation until she is tested and makes it clear that the chance of transmission has been highly reduced.
“Having heard of the positive test of President Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, and although I think – taking into account the available data – it is highly unlikely that there could have been any broadcast in the SIC studio on January 6, journalist Clara de Sousa is in isolation until tested. The test should be done next Wednesday “, says and note from SIC.
The President of the Republic is infected with covid-19 but is asymptomatic. Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa is tested almost every day and this was the case this Monday: Expresso knows that the rapid test in the morning was negative, while the PCR done afterwards was positive – the President was informed by 9:40 pm.
António Costa, Marta Temido and Ferro Rodrigues have already been officially informed and Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa’s agenda for the next few days is canceled – remember that a presidential debate was scheduled for this Tuesday at RTP with all the candidates. There is still no definitive decision on whether the debate will happen or not.
The President’s agenda for the next few days is all canceled.
