Kosovo’s Acting President Says She Has the Coronavirus

November 17, 2020

PRISTINA, Kosovo — Kosovo’s acting president says she has the coronavirus following contacts with some of her relatives.

President Vjosa Osmani wrote in her Facebook page she was self-quarantining at home for two weeks at home and will keep working.

Osmani has been elected as Parliament speaker but earlier this month she also took the post of the president after her predecessor resigned to face a war crimes court.

Kosovo reported 690 new confirmed cases and 16 deaths on Tuesday. The European Center for Disease Prevention and Control reports 508 cases per 100,000 residents in the last two weeks.

The country is in a partial lockdown with an overnight curfew, mandatory use of masks and limited number of employees working daily in the office.

Health authorities in the country of 1.8 million report a total of 30,495 confirmed cases and 849 deaths.
