Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin has been released from the hospital after being treated for the coronavirus.
Russian state media reported on Tuesday that Mishustin, who revealed he was diagnosed with COVID-19 in April and entered self-isolation, has resumed his official duties.
The prime minister had an online meeting and was preparing for a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday, Mishustin’s press secretary said, as reported by RIA-Novosti.
Mishustin is the highest profile Russian official to contract COVID-19, but not the only one. Dmitry Peskov, a spokesman for the Kremlin, was hospitalized last week after testing positive for the virus.
Cases of COVID-19 in Russia have soared and health officials now report more than 299,940 cases, second in the world to the U.S. The country has recorded more than 2,830 deaths.
Globally, officials report more than 4.8 million cases of the coronavirus and 318,857 deaths.
