Expressing his gratitude for all the wishes for a speedy recovery, Polish presidential spokesman Błażej Spychalski wrote on Twitter on Monday that he may not be able to answer phone and text messages in the coming days since he had coronavirus symptoms.

"Thanks for all the wishes for a speedy recovery. Unfortunately, I do have symptoms of a COVID-19 infection. Please understand that in the coming days I may not be able to answer telephones and text messages. Please remember - masks, self-distancing, disinfection," Spychalski wrote on Monday.

On Saturday, Spychalski wrote on Twitter that President Andrzej Duda had tested positive for coronavirus, and announced that he himself was going to be quarantined.

In a Saturday afternoon Twitter post, President Duda confirmed earlier reports that he had tested positive for coronavirus, saying he did not have any symptoms and was feeling fine.

The president said he will spend the coming days in self-isolation and will be working from home.
