Estonian Prime Minister Kaja Kallas, whose country currently has the world’s second-highest per-capita coronavirus infection rate, on Monday said she too had tested positive for Covid.
The EU member went on partial lockdown last week as its healthcare system is struggling to cope with the pandemic.
“This evening I tested positive for Covid-19. I will remain at home until my recovery,” Kallas wrote on Twitter.
“Fortunately e-Estonia enables me to continue fulfilling all the tasks of the head of government virtually. Stay healthy!” she added.
A separate government statement said “Kallas has a low fever but no other symptoms and is generally feeling well.”
