Croatian PM is self-isolating after his wife tested positive for coronavirus
The head of the prime minister’s office, Zvonimir Frka-Petesic, said on Sunday PM Andrej Plenkovic was self-isolating from his wife, who has coronavirus, and their children, adding that he had no symptoms, was continuing to do his job and that the government was working normally.
Plenkovic has been self-isolating since Saturday when his wife tested positive. His test came back negative.
“The government is working normally. This morning we had two meetings via video link,” Frka-Petesic told the press.
He said the prime minister would participate in Monday’s cabinet meeting via video link and that as far as he knew, nothing would be cancelled and that all meetings would be virtual.
Asked if the prime minister would get tested again, he said he would when epidemiologists decided that it was necessary.
