Turkish Prez tests negative for Covid-19


Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan tested negative for Covid-19 after being infected with the virus last week, semi-official Anadolu Agency reported.

“President Erdogan’s PCR tests that we have done over the past two days have come back negative,” his doctor Serkan Topaloglu was quoted as saying by the agency on Thursday.

“I think that our President will return to his routine program very soon, even tomorrow,” Topaloglu said.

The Turkish President and first lady Emine Erdogan were under isolation since Saturday after they had tested positive for the Omicron variant of the coronavirus, Xinhua news agency reported.

In June 2021, Erdogan said he had received his third vaccine dose.

Turkey on Wednesday reported 108,563 new Covid-19 cases, and 266 more people have died, according to its Health Ministry.
