In a statement, Chidiac confirmed that she tested positive for the emerging coronavirus (COVID-19) after she arrived back in Lebanon from France a few days before Beirut International Airport was shut down.
The media office of the former minister said in a statement quoting her: “After my return from Paris last week, I had some symptoms consistent with the coronavirus (COVID-19). I immediately proceeded to home quarantine.”
“Last Saturday, I performed medical examinations at Hotel-Dieu Hospital to confirm the cause of the symptoms. The results were out Monday and were positive.”
