BELGRADE, Serbia 

Kosovo’s caretaker Prime Minister Albin Kurti on Monday said he was self-isolating as he awaits results of his COVID-19 test.  

Kurti announced that he will be isolating himself due to his contact with a ministry official who was in close contact with a person who tested positive for COVID-19. 

“Today is the first day when I will not go to work at the Prime Ministry. Samples have been taken and we are waiting for the result. We will perform our duties from a distance with the same dedication, we will make the right decisions with the same responsibility,” said Kurti on Facebook. 

Other officials of the Prime Minister’s Office are currently self-isolated in their homes. 

There are currently 884 COVID-19 cases in Kosovo, with 28 deaths and 655 recoveries.
