“It feels like a flu,” said Peskov, noting that “it’s not so serious.”

In the program “Moscow. Kremlin. Putin ”, the spokesman added that on the day when he“ apparently got infected ”, he went in for sports for an hour and a half and ran 7 km.

The next day, Peskov’s temperature rose.

“It’s an absolutely unusual sensation when you lose your sense of smell and taste ... you cannot distinguish strawberries from chicken,” RIA Novosti quoted him as saying.

May 25, it became known that Peskov was discharged from the hospital, where he was treated for coronavirus. Peskov’s wife Tatyana Navka also recovered from coronavirus infection.
