Estonian Prime Minister Kaja Kallas has tested positive for coronavirus. She announced on Twitter that she would be working from home for the time being.
Ms Kallas said that two days ago, on August 8, she “did not have a voice”, but she herself attributed it to a cold from the air conditioner, since rapid tests for COVID-19 were negative. “By Monday evening, however, a high temperature had risen. Today the test showed that I have COVID,” she wrote on Facebook (owned by Meta, which is recognized as extremist and banned in the Russian Federation).
The Prime Minister of Estonia clarified that, as directed by the doctor, she must stay at home for at least 48 hours after the symptoms of the virus disappear. Because of this, she will hold a meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers in an online format, and it was decided to cancel all personal meetings and speeches for the time being.
Kaja Kallas has been Prime Minister of Estonia since January 2021. This week, she called on the European Union to stop issuing visas to Russian tourists, saying that travel to Europe is “a privilege, not a human right.”
