San Jose, Feb 11 (IANS) Costa Rican President Carlos Alvarado tested positive for Covid-19 and is in isolation, the presidency said on Thursday.

Alvarado "presented mild symptoms of Covid-19 on Wednesday afternoon and proceeded to perform the PCR test, whose positive result we have already received," according to the statement.

Last week, the government reported that First Lady Claudia Dobles, who remains in isolation, had contracted Covid-19.

The President, who is fully vaccinated, had tested negative until recently and even went to vote in Sunday's presidential and legislative elections, Xinhua news agency reported.

After testing positive, Alvarado canceled all in-person events and will continue to work virtually.

"The President is well and will be in isolation at home, in keeping with the recommendations of the doctors, and observing the necessary precautions," the statement said.

Costa Rica is registering an average of more than 6,000 new cases of Covid-19 a day, and has reported a total of 745,949 cases and 7,730 deaths from the disease since the onset of the pandemic.
