Ukraine’s President Has Been Hospitalized With COVID

November 12, 2020

KYIV, Ukraine — Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, who tested positive for the coronavirus earlier this week, has been hospitalized.

Spokeswoman Iuliia Mendel told The Associated Press his symptoms remain mild and there is “nothing serious” in his condition. Zelenskiy disclosed Monday he contracted the virus.

Mendel says he was moved to a hospital in Kyiv because “there are better conditions for self-isolation and care for coronavirus patients.”

Zelenskiy’s chief of staff, defense minister and the finance minister have been diagnosed with COVID-19.

On Wednesday, Ukraine’s government ordered non-essential businesses to shut down on weekends to stem the rapid growth of the outbreak.

Health officials reported another record 11,057 coronavirus cases on Thursday. Ukraine has reported a total of 500,865 confirmed cases and 9,145 deaths.
