Federal Treasurer Josh Frydenberg tests positive for Covid-19
The federal Treasurer, Josh Frydenberg, has announced he’s been infected with Covid.
“Like thousands of Australians, I tested positive today to Covid-19,” Mr Frydenberg wrote on social media.
“I have the common symptoms and am isolating with my family.
“My thoughts are with those who have Covid – this is a difficult time but we will get through this.”
Mr Frydenberg’s wife, Amie, has also tested positive for COVID-19. It is unclear whether the couple has contracted the Omicron or Delta strain of the virus.
Mr Frydenberg is the latest government MP to test positive for COVID-19; Defence Minister Peter Dutton tested positive in March 2020 after a visit to the United States, and Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce tested positive in December.
