HE Pierre Dartout, Monaco’s Minister of State, has tested positive for coronavirus and will continue to work in isolation from colleagues.

He has only mild symptoms and his condition is no cause for concern, the Government said on Monday afternoon.

This is the second time that Mr Dartout has tested positive, the first time being at the end of December 2021, when he returned from family holidays.

Five days ago, HSH Prince Albert tested positive and was not able to lead the Sainte Devote celebrations.
