Orthodox businessman Malofeyev contracts coronavirus

Moscow, April 29, Interfax - Well-known businessman Konstantin Malofeyev said he has contracted coronavirus.

"I have uncharacteristic symptoms," Malofeyev said on Tsargrad television on Wednesday, adding that he feels "not bad for a Covid-19 patient."

Malofeyev fell ill a week ago and the only symptoms he had in that time were weakness and pain in his shoulder area, near the lungs. A test and a CT scan confirmed coronavirus. "That's what it is," Malofeyev said.

Saying that the new coronavirus infection may not cause fever, like it happened in his situation, the businessman, who was one a co-owner of Rostelecom, called on his fellow citizens to be careful about their health and get tested to determine further correct treatment.
