TORONTO (Reuters) - Canada’s foreign minister is isolating himself after showing “new, flu-like symptoms” less than 14 days after coming back from overseas, Francois-Philippe Champagne said on Twitter on Thursday.

Champagne said he was “at home while I await my results very shortly”. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau went into self-isolation last week after his wife tested positive for the coronavirus.
