Helsinki, 18 August 2020 (dpa/MIA) – Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin said on Tuesday she was to undergo a coronavirus test and work remotely after experiencing mild respiratory symptoms.
The 34-year-old prime minister made the announcement on Twitter.
In April, she also briefly self-isolated after an employee at her official residence was discovered to have been in contact with someone infected with the virus. Subsequent tests showed that neither Marin nor the employee had the virus.
Her schedule on Tuesday included a session with parliamentary members of her Social Democratic party and talks with the Cabinet via video conference.
The government was expected to discuss a possible suspension of flights to and from North Macedonia due to a high number of coronavirus cases among passengers arriving from the Balkan country.
Finland had by Monday recorded 334 coronavirus-related deaths and about 7,700 infections.
