Coronavirus: Top Doctor Who Shook Putin’s Hand Tests Positive

Denis Protsenko, the chief doctor of Moscow’s top hospital for coronavirus patients, confirmed he has tested positive for the COVID-19 coronavirus, a statement that comes a week after he shook hands with President Vladimir Putin.

Putin visited the Kommunarka hospital a week ago and met with its chief Protsenko. The doctor said he is feeling okay and self-isolated in his office.

There was no immediate comment from the Kremlin on whether Putin had undergone a coronavirus test following Protsenko’s announcement.
