      Justin Trudeau is the latest in a growing list of world leaders who've been infected by COVID-19.

      This morning, Trudeau revealed over Twitter that he's feeling fine after testing positive for the disease.

      He plans to continue working remotely this week.

      It comes at a time when opponents of vaccine mandates and vaccine passports have converged on Ottawa, which led to his family being moved to an undisclosed location.

      Trudeau had earlier revealed that he was in isolation after one of his children tested positive for COVID-19.

      On March 12, 2020, one day after the World Health Organization had described COVID-19 as a pandemic, Trudeau's wife, Sophie, tested positive following a trip to the U.K.

      Other world leaders who've tested positive for COVID-19 include French president Emmanuel Macron, British prime minister Boris Johnson, former U.S. president Donald Trump, Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro, Honduran president Juan Orlando Hernandez, Belarus president Alexander Lukasheno, Armenian prime minister Nikol Pashinyan, and Guatemalan president Alejandro Giammettei.

      John Magufuli was president of Tanzania when he died in 2021 amid rumours of having contracted COVID-19. He reportedly died of a heart condition.

      The prime minister of Eswatini (formerly known as Swaziland), Ambrose Dlamini, reportedly died of COVID-19 in 2020.
