DUBAI: A Vietnamese socialite has tested positive for Covid-19 after flying to Milan and Paris to attend Fashion Week before she was diagnosed.
The 27-year-old was in attendance at the Gucci show in Milan on Feb. 19 and the Saint Laurent show in Paris on Feb. 25, the South China Morning Post reported this week.
Hundreds of people attended the shows, including fashion editors and bloggers from the Middle East.
