Olena Zelenska, the wife of Ukrainian’s President Volodymyr Zelenskiy has been hospitalized with double pneumonia after contracting Coronavirus.
Zelenskiy’s office said in a statement Tuesday that Olena Zelenska’s condition was stable and the president himself and the couple’s children tested negative for the virus on Monday.
“Olena Zelenska’s current diagnosis is COVID-19 – bilateral polysegmental pneumonia of moderate severity. (She) Does not require oxygen donation. The condition is stable,” the office said in a statement.
The president has been forced to limit his contacts to a “very small circle” of people and has started conducting meetings and talks via teleconference, but continued going to the office, as some of his duties can’t be fulfilled remotely, the president’s spokeswoman Yuliia Mendel told the Ukrainska Pravda news outlet.
