Czech President Milos Zeman has been taken to the hospital after testing positive for Covid-19. The test was performed a few hours after he was discharged from the medical facility, where he spent about six weeks due to an undisclosed diagnosis.
The President of the Czech Republic announced on Thursday night that the 77-year-old official was hospitalized. Zeman was taken to the Central Military Hospital (UVN) after testing positive for the coronavirus during the Rani presidential retreat outside the country’s capital Prague.
“The President’s plan will be suspended, waiting for Covid-19 treatment,” Zeman’s office said in a statement.
Zeman was discharged from UVN earlier in the day and stayed there for about six weeks. The President was initially hospitalized on October 10 and placed in the intensive care unit, where he remained for most of his time in the facility.
Although the diagnosis has not been formally confirmed, local media reported that Zeman’s long stay at UVN was due to liver disease. The president made little clarification on this issue, saying only that he was receiving treatment for a chronic disease.
Regarding his positive test for Covid-19, it was reported that the President did not show symptoms of the disease. According to local media reports, he had been vaccinated at least 3 times before.
