Russia’s top doctor for coronavirus cases, Denis Protsenko, has tested positive for the virus, state media reported on Tuesday.
Mr Protsenko heads the coronavirus treatment facility at Moscow’s Kommunarka hospital. Moscow, the capital and largest city, has had the most recorded cases in the country.
Mr Protsenko met with President Vladimir Putin at the facility last week to discuss how it has coped with the influx of patients.
According to Putin’s spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, the president is regularly tested for the virus and is healthy.
