Estonian Prime Minister Kaja Kallas tests positive for COVID

Estonian Prime Minister Kaja Kallas has tested positive for coronavirus, she announced in a Facebook post on Wednesday.

“The morning started positively, unfortunately, corona-positively,” she quipped.

Kallas said she has minor symptoms: She lost her voice on Monday, attributing that to a minor cold, because her rapid COVID tests were negative at first. She tested positive after a fever soared on Monday evening. Kallas was on Monday in the eastern city of Narva, near the Russian border, to meet with local authorities, according to local media.

Her post adds that she will isolate for the time being, and that she will conduct her government’s duties virtually until her symptoms disappear. She reminded Estonians to get a booster shot in August and September, in light of COVID cases on the rise in the country.

On Tuesday, Kallas had joined Finland and Latvia’s calls in urging the EU to close its borders to all Russian travelers.
