Of course, my work as a mayor during the pandemic involves constant exposure to risk, namely communication with people and inspection of hospitals. In particular, I regularly visited the infectious disease wards where COVID-19 patients are treated." I tried to be careful. Given the specifics of my work, I regularly did tests. Unfortunately, today's test result is disappointing," he said on Telegram on October 24.
