Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic will self-isolate a few more days due to milder respiratory problems caused by COVID-19 and will not participate in Thursday's EU summit, the government said on Wednesday.
“The prime minister is feeling well and does not have a temperature. During the entire isolation, which began on Saturday, November 28, the prime minister has been working continuously and every day from home, performing all his activities and duties,” the government said, adding that self-isolation was extended for a few more days “at doctors’ advice.”
Plenkovic began to self-isolate after his wife tested positive for coronavirus. He tested positive two days later.
According to available information, he will not take part in the EU summit even via video link.
