Sophie Grégoire Trudeau, the wife of Canada’s prime minister, says she has recovered from COVID-19 after falling ill earlier this month. 

She revealed the news on her social media accounts on Saturday evening. 

“The good news is I have a clear bill of health now,” Grégoire Trudeau said in an Instagram video. “So I’m super happy. So it’s all good.”

The former TV host said her symptoms are now gone and went on to thank fellow Canadians for their words of support. 

“I am feeling so much better and have received the all clear from my physician and Ottawa Public Health,” she wrote on Facebook.

“From the bottom of my heart, I want to say thank you to everyone who reached out to me with their well wishes. And to everyone who is suffering right now, I send you all my love,” she continued.

“I strongly believe that science AND compassion will get us through this crisis.”

The mother of three from Montreal was one of the first high-profile people to contract the novel coronavirus. 

She tested positive on March 12 after returning from the U.K. with flu-like symptoms and a low fever, according to the Prime Minister’s Office. 

Grégoire Trudeau’s symptoms were described as mild as she remained in isolation. 

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau also self-isolated for 14 days on doctor’s orders, but he insisted he was in good health and experienced no symptoms.

It’s unclear exactly how Grégoire Trudeau contracted the highly contagious virus. She participated in a WE Day event at a London arena earlier this month. Actor Idris Elba also attended the function and later tested positive for COVID-19. 

“We’re going through some really rough times, some really difficult times, and we’re going to stick through it together,” Grégoire Trudeau said. 

“We need to learn that we are all interconnected. That we are all in this together.” 

As of Saturday, there are 5,625 confirmed cases of COVID-19 across Canada. More than 575,000 cases and over 26,000 deaths have been reported worldwide, according to the World Health Organization.
