A spokesman for the IMF stated Thursday that Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva had tested positive for Covid-19, but that she had experienced “minimal symptoms.”
“IMF Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva has tested positive for Covid-19. She is experiencing mild symptoms and is working remotely while isolating at home,” the Washington-based crisis lender’s spokesman Gerry Rice said in a statement.
“She is fully vaccinated and boosted,” he added.
Georgieva is the latest in a long line of Washington elites to test positive for the coronavirus, which has been on the rise recently due to an increase in everyday infections.
Several members of Congress, as well as Vice President Kamala Harris, who tested positive on Tuesday, are part of this group.
She claimed at the time that she was not in close communication with Vice President Joe Biden.
