Wilmes, who was the caretaker prime minister of Belgium during the first wave of the coronavirus pandemic, announced via Twitter on Saturday that she had tested positive for COVID-19, saying that the “contamination probably happened within my family circle given all precautions taken outside of my home.”

She is the country’s first woman foreign minister, as well as the first and only woman prime minister in Belgian history.
