Polish President Andrzej Duda has tested positive for coronavirus for a second time and has been self-isolating, according to an announcement made by his chief of staff on Wednesday.
The head of the Polish president’s cabinet Paweł Szrot informed media about the infection on Wednesday, posting on social media that the president was not showing any severe symptoms and had been under constant medical care.
Presidential Minister Bogna Janke also confirmed that Duda was in good health on Sunday.
“The president is in absolute isolation for 10 days but is feeling well. He is suffering light symptoms and under the constant care of doctors,” she told Polsat News TV, adding that Duda is in regular contact with his staff.
The president has received three doses of the coronavirus vaccine and was therefore not suffering from the virus too harshly, Janke explained.
President Andrzej Duda had taken a coronavirus test due to a number of cases being reported within his chancellery. It is the second time he has been diagnosed with the virus; the previous infection was in October 2020.
Duda had the first two doses of a coronavirus vaccine in April and June last year, receiving his booster jab last month.
