A spokesman for the president of the Russian Federation specified that he was in the clinic where he was undergoing treatment.
Yes, I’m sick, I’m being treated,
– answered Peskov to a question from journalists about his health.
The presence of the disease in Peskov was confirmed by his wife, figure skater Tatyana Navka, who also fell ill with COVID-19.
We are under the supervision of doctors. Everything is fine. In almost two days I came to my senses, everything returned to normal: my blood and temperature were gone. They say that women endure it easier, probably it's true. Dmitry Sergeyevich is also under control, everything is in order with him. We are treated
Asked by reporters why the couple was in the hospital, she replied that they decided to hospitalize because they did not put their entire family at risk. She suspects that it was her husband who first became ill, because he is the only member of the family who works. According to Navka, the rest of the family adheres to self-isolation.
It is known that the last time Dmitry Peskov was seen on April 30 at a meeting with Vladimir Putin – It was that day when Mishustin confirmed the coronavirus.

However, Peskov told TASS that he had contacted the president more than a month ago.
Interestingly, in April, on a Peskov jacket, journalists noticed a “virus blocker,” which has no proven effectiveness. He said that although he did not know, he was effective, but for protection, "everyone wears everything that he can." The very next day, the official came to work without a blocker.

At the Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Mikhail Mishustin; At the Minister of Culture of the Russian Federation Olga Lyubimova; At the head of the Ministry of Construction, Vladimir Yakushev; The deputy head of the Ministry of Construction Dmitry Volkov.
