European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen has said that she went into self-isolation due to contact with a person who tested positive for coronavirus.

"I've been informed that I participated in a meeting last Tuesday attended by a person who yesterday tested positive for COVID-19. In accordance with regulations in force, I'm therefore self-isolating until tomorrow morning. I've tested negative on Thursday & am tested again today," she wrote on her Twitter account.

The annual EU-Ukraine summit is to be held in Brussels on Tuesday, October 6. The European Commission president was expected to attend the event.

The previous EU-Ukraine summit took place in July last year. Following the summit, agreements were signed on financial support for civil society, decentralization, anti-corruption measures and reforms.
