Moscow: Russian President Vladimir Putin has gone into self-isolation after new coronavirus infection cases were detected in his entourage. President Putin will not visit Tajikistan this week for regional security meetings for the same reason, the Presidential Office Kremlin reported on Tuesday. "Vladimir Putin said he should remain in self-isolation for a certain time-frame due to coronavirus cases found in his team," the Kremlin statement said.
It may be recalled that the Kremlin made the statement while giving details of a call between President Putin and Tajikistan's President Emomali Rahmon. Tell you that Putin has taken both doses of corona vaccine Sputnik-V. He took the second dose in April. The spokesperson said the President is perfectly healthy, but he will remain in isolation as he is exposed to infected people. However, the spokesperson did not say how long Putin would remain in isolation, but he said he would continue his work. Peskov did not comment on with whom Putin came in contact.
Earlier, the Kremlin reported that Putin and Tajikistan President Emomali Rahmon had a phone conversation. Putin had earlier attended several events on Monday. He met Russian Paralympic players, participated in a coordinated military operation with Belarus, and met Syrian President Bashar Assad. During his meeting with Paralympic players, Putin said he may soon have to "go into isolation."
