Former NATO chief Javier Solana has coronavirus
Madrid: Former NATO secretary-general Javier Solana is being treated at a Madrid hospital for coronavirus, a source close to the Spanish politician said Saturday.
“He tested positive and is evolving favourably,” the source told AFP, confirming a report in conservative newspaper ABC which said he had been hospitalised for the disease in the Spanish capital on Wednesday.
In a tweet sent to a well wisher, the former Spanish foreign minister said he was “getting better”. Solana, 77, served as NATO secretary-general from 1995 to 1999, then as the European Union High Representative for Foreign Affairs from 1999 to 2009. – AFP
