WARSAW: Polish President Andrzej Duda has tested positive for COVID-19, his spokesperson Blazej Spychalski said on social media on Saturday morning.
“The president is feeling fine,” Spychalski tweeted. “We are in constant contact with the relevant medical services.”
The test result was reported to the president on Friday evening. Most of his staff and Duda himself have been quarantined.
The Polish president was working until the test result came in.
He visited the National Stadium in Warsaw on Friday afternoon to inspect the work on a field hospital, which has an initial capacity of 500 beds and can be expanded to 1,000 beds. The temporary hospital is slated to become operational over the weekend.
