President Emmanuel Macron tested positive for coronavirus on December 17, prompting a track and trace effort across Europe following meetings between the French leader and EU heads of government in recent days. Macron, 42, was running the country remotely after going into quarantine in the Elysee Palace, the presidency said. His wife Brigitte was also self-isolating. Macron had joined all but two of the European Union's 27 leaders at a summit in Brussels the previous week to discuss climate change, the EU budget and Turkey. Macron, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Italian Prime Giuseppe Conte and others were seen initially mingling in the summit room with their face masks on.

Seven-times Formula One world champion Lewis Hamilton tested positive for COVID-19 on December 1 and missed the Sakhir Grand Prix in Bahrain, the first time he had to sit out a race in his F1 career. The Briton was isolating with mild symptoms but otherwise fit and well, his Mercedes team said in a statement. "Lewis was tested three times last week and returned a negative result each time, the last of which was on Sunday afternoon at the Bahrain International Circuit...," said Mercedes. "However, he woke up on Monday morning with mild symptoms and was informed at the same time that a contact prior to arrival in Bahrain had subsequently tested positive. Lewis therefore took a further test and returned a positive result. This has since been confirmed by a retest."

Prince William contracted COVID-19 in April at a similar time to his father, the heir-to-the-throne Prince Charles, a source close to his Kensington Palace office said. The 38-year-old, second-in-line to the British throne, kept his diagnosis a secret because he did not want to alarm the country, said The Sun newspaper. He was treated by palace doctors and followed government guidelines by isolating at his family's home Anmer Hall, in Norfolk in eastern England, the newspaper said. "William was hit pretty hard by the virus - it really knocked him for six. At one stage he was struggling to breathe, so obviously everyone around him was pretty panicked," an unnamed source told The Sun. Kensington Palace declined to comment officially on the story but did not deny The Sun's report. The Daily Mail newspaper said that neither William's wife Kate nor his young children George, Charlotte and Louis had tested positive for the virus.
