Kyriakos Mitsotakis, the prime minister of Greece, took to social media on Monday to announce he had tested positive for COVID-19 a day after a trip to Istanbul, Turkey.
Mitaotakis posted a video where he told followers he had tested positive and is self-isolating at home.
“In the daily rapid test that I did today in the office, I tested positive for COVID-19,” Mitsotakis said in the video. “Consequently I will be self-isolating in my home and work from there.”
Wearing a mask as he addressed his followers, Mitsotakis said: “Triple vaccination provides the best possible protection against serious disease. I’m sure everything will go well and I will be back in the office very soon.”
The Greek Prime Minister was in Turkey on Sunday, where he met with the President of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan and and Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew of Constantinople.
