UNITED Kingdom — The President of Argentina has tested positive for Covid-19, despite having the Russian-made vaccine Sputnik V in January.

Alberto Fernández, 62, had the jab publicly in a Buenos Aires hospital on January 21 but came down with a fever and slight headache on Friday, prompting him to get tested.

His diagnosis was confirmed with an antigen test, followed by a PCR test, over the weekend.

Fernández said: ‘I’m already isolated, complying with the current protocol and following the instructions of my personal doctor.

‘I have contacted the people I met in the last 48 hours to assess whether they constitute close contact.’

The President’s medical team said he was ‘stable, asymptomatic, with parameters within normal ranges.

Fernández has received both doses of the Sputnik vaccine, one in January and the second in February. (AI|MailOnline Courtesy)
