The outgoing mayor of Isabela, Carlos “Charlie” Delgado Altieri, tested positive for the COVID-19 molecular test that was done last Thursday, confirmed to The new day his press spokesman, Josué Brenes.
Delgado Altieri told this media last Wednesday that he had symptoms similar to the new coronavirus, which is why he had self-imposed isolation. He indicated, in turn, that the molecular test would be done, but the result was not known until today.
“As he told you, he was sure he had COVID from the type of symptoms, so he did take the test on Thursday and it came back positive. Right now he is staying at home. It’s okay, but it continues with symptoms “Brenes said by phone.
He held that Delgado Altieri continues with a lack of smell and taste, direct symptoms related to the suffering of the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19.
“Inside everything is fine. His relatives are also in good health. If there is anything else we need to report, we will be doing it later. But Charlie is still fine, ”Brenes added.
In early October, Delgado Altieri also self-imposed preventive isolation after being in contact with a person who tested positive for COVID-19. On that occasion, the former candidate was tested and came out negative.
The president of the Popular Democratic Party leaves the Isabela mayor’s office in December after 20 years in office. He was a candidate for governor, a contest he lost to Pedro Pierluisi, of the New Progressive Party (PNP).
After hearing the news, Governor Wanda Vázquez sent him a message of prompt improvement.
