Trudeau infected

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau tested positive for Covid-19 for the second time, just days after meeting in person with President Joe Biden.

Trudeau said he feels fine and that’s because he’s vaccinated.

He tested positive after meeting with Biden and other leaders at the Summit of the Americas in Los Angeles. Biden took a “family photo” with Trudeau on Friday and met with him on Thursday. In January he was positive with his wife.
