Christine Lagarde in self-quarantine

C

Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank (ECB) went into temporary isolation last week after being in contact with a person infected with the corona virus. Insiders say it to the Bloomberg news agency.

The ECB declined to comment, but said that Lagarde worked from her office this week. Lagarde is holding preliminary video conferences to discuss the ECB’s measures to tackle the corona crisis. The ECB launched a € 750 billion buy-back program last week to combat the damaging effects of the crisis on the economy.

Other senior policymakers in Europe have also become self-isolated, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel and German Finance Minister Olaf Scholz. They have both been tested negative for the virus.
