This is how people are reacting to the news Sophie Gregoire Trudeau has coronavirus

Sophie Grégoire Trudeau has now tested positive for the 2019 novel coronavirus.

According to the Prime Minister's Office, "She is feeling well, is taking all the recommended precautions and her symptoms remain mild."

The news comes after the PMO announced on Thursday that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his wife would be spending the day in isolation as Sophie Grégoire Trudeau was tested for COVID-19.

The PMO confirmed that Justin Trudeau "is in good health with no symptoms," but will remain in isolation for the next 14 days on the advice of doctors.

"Also on the advice of doctors, he will not be tested at this stage since he has no symptoms," the statement said. "For the same reason, doctors say there is no risk to those who have been in contact with him recently."

Sophie Grégoire Trudeau thanked Canadians for their concern.

She described her symptoms as "uncomfortable," but said that she will be back on her feet soon.

"Being in quarantine at home is nothing compared to other Canadian families who might be going through this and for those facing more serious health concerns," she said.

"We will get through this together."

Many Canadians are sending their love and prayers to the Prime Minister and his wife.

And some are realizing that the most important things truly are health and family.

In some ways, the coronavirus pandemic is uniting all of us — regardless of political parties.

And it's making some people downright proud to be Canadian.

Although one person pointed out that Justin Trudeau should really make paid sick leave a priority, so that the rest of Canada can self-isolate too, if necessary.

There are currently 158 cases of coronavirus in Canada.

Ontario has 59 cases, B.C. has 53, Alberta has 23, Quebec has 17, Manitoba has 3, and Saskatchewan and New Brunswick both have one. The final case is a repatriated Canadian in Trenton, Ont.
