Putin in self-isolation due to COVID cases in inner circle

Source: AP

By DARIA LITVINOVA

MOSCOW (AP) — Russian President Vladimir Putin entered self-isolation after people in his inner circle became infected with the coronavirus, the Kremlin said Tuesday, adding that the leader himself tested negative for COVID-19.

Putin, who is fully vaccinated with Russia’s Sputnik V, held several public engagements indoors Monday and even said that he may have to quarantine soon. An aide at the time sought to suggest he was speaking generally and insisted Tuesday that no one’s heath was endangered.

During a daily conference call with reporters, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that Putin is “absolutely healthy” but had come in contact with someone who contracted the virus. Asked if Putin tested negative for the virus, Peskov said “definitely, yes.”

Peskov didn’t say when Putin began self-isolating, when he tested negative, how long he would remain in self-isolation or who among the president’s contacts was infected. He did say there were several cases.

7. Shhhhhhhhh!

We're supposed to join Corporate Media, Inc. in pretending we don't know about the backdoor intimacies shared by the RepubliQons and the nation that coldly regards the USA as its number one enemy.

3. I understand he's really paranoid about catching COVID

Unlike Trump, he never caught Covid-19. But he spews the same toxic nonsense Trump spews about the pandemic.

His kingdom was in 2nd place for number of dead from Covid-19 for a while. But they are still very high. Nothing for his citizens all for him and his henchmen.
