Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin returns to work after fighting the corona virus, the Kremlin said on Tuesday.
President Vladimir Putin signed a decree asking Mikhail Mishustin to resume his regular duties, which have been performed by a MP since April 30 while the 54-year-old Prime Minister was receiving medical treatment.
Mikhail Mishustin, who was surprisingly appointed by Vladimir Putin earlier this year, stayed in the hospital but still attended government meetings and appeared in a suit behind a desk.
Vladimir Putin had decided that Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Belousov would take over after Mikhail Mishustin told Vladimir Putin that his test had been positive.
No further details have been released on Mikhail Mishustin's recovery or condition.
Several other high-ranking officials were also infected with the corona virus in Russia, including the Ministers of Culture, Education and Building, and Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov.
Russia had the second highest number of confirmed coronavirus cases with 299,941 reported infections on Tuesday after the United States.
