Austrian Chancellor Karl Nehammer has tested positive for COVID-19 and is isolating at home, he announced on Twitter.
Nehammer has received three coronavirus vaccine doses and is not displaying any symptoms. He said he caught the virus from a member of his security team.
“There is no need to worry, I am fine. My appeal continues to be: go get vaccinated, get boostered, it will most likely protect you from a severe dose,” the chancellor said in a press release.
Nehammer, who took office in December 2021, is aiming to make vaccinations compulsory in Austria.
