    A fever, cough, fatigue… it is Emmanuel Macron’s turn to contract Covid, the French president self-isolating at La Lanterne. A guest house on the grounds of the Palace of Versailles that is an official residence for French presidents. There, Macron is soldiering on with his official engagements and taking to social media. Good luck contact tracing a workaholic 42-year old head of state. Emmanuel Macron had a full agenda of public appearances over the past week.
