At the same time, Reznikov says he feels fine. "Smells, tastes – everything is ok, I was delighted to feel the smell of fried onions. The temperature is a little higher than normal. And the body slightly aches – like after doing sports. And it feels pleasant, but the causes are unpleasant," he said.

He also said his voice had become hoarse.

On the evening of November 9, President Volodymyr Zelensky said on Telegram that he had become infected with COVID-19. He listed only an increase in his body temperature as a symptom of the disease.
