Russian President Putin to self-isolate over coronavirus cases in inner circle

Russian President Vladmir Putin will go into self-isolation after a few members of his inner circle tested positive for coronavirus Monday, as per a statement from the Kremlin.

In a phone call with Tajikistan’s President Emomali Rakhmon, “Putin said that in connection with identified coronavirus cases in his circle, he will observe a self-isolation regime for a certain period of time” and not attend a regional summit in person later this week in Dushanbe, the Kremlin said.
