European Union official Michel Barnier has tested positive for the novel coronavirus, he confirmed on Twitter.
The EU's chief Brexit negotiator said he was "doing well and in good spirits," and was following all the precautions along with his team.
He added: "For all those affected already, and for all those currently in isolation, we will get through this together."
Barnier also shared a video of him filmed at his home, in which he paid tribute to health workers and said he was thinking of all the families affected by the coronavirus.
He also mentioned his book on ecological threats, "Chacun Pour Tous" (Each For All), which he said was relevant to the current crisis.
