Ferreira is the latest member of the College to go into precautionary quarantine after coming in contact with someone infected with the virus. On Tuesday, EU Commissioner for Crisis Management, Janez Lenarcic also announced he would self-isolate after a member of his team tested positive for the virus. Similarly, the bloc’s top diplomat, Josep Borrell said he would quarantine after a member of the delegation, with whom he travelled to Ethiopia last week had tested positive for COVID-19.
