The president of Argentina, Alberto Fernández, who turned 62 this Friday and had already been vaccinated against COVID-19, confirmed this Saturday (03.04.2021) that he tested positive for antigens, waiting to confirm the outcome of the PCR test.
“I wanted to tell you that at the end of today, after presenting a 37.3 fever record and a mild headache, I had an antigen test that was positive,” the representative wrote on his Twitter account in the early hours of this Saturday.
“While we are awaiting confirmation through the PCR test, I am already isolated, complying with the current protocol and following the instructions of my personal doctor,” said Fernandez, who last January 21 received the first dose of the Sputnik-V vaccine and was subsequently inoculated with the second.
The ruler received both doses of the Russian Sputnik V vaccine, the first on 21 January and the second on 11 February.

The representative, who this Saturday turned 62, was preemptively isolated and clarified that he is “physically fine.” “Even if I would have wanted to finish my birthday without this news, I’m also in good spirits,” he said.
The Argentine president completed the two-dose scheme of the Sputnik V vaccine, from the Russian gamaleya laboratory, the first received on 21 January and the second on 11 February, as said by sources of presidency.
“I’ve contacted the people I’ve been meeting for the last 48 hours to assess whether they’re close contact for isolation,” Fernandez said.
