Ukrainian president: ‘I wanted to get coronavirus’

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy claimed he seriously considered intentionally infecting himself with the coronavirus to show people that “it’s not the plague.”

“I wanted to go through this process. I wanted to get sick with the coronavirus,” Zelenskiy told Ukrainian Pravda in an interview published Tuesday, after being asked whether he was afraid of catching it.

Asked whether there was a specific person from whom he planned to catch the virus, Zelenskiy said “no, but we understood that in the center there were people lying [in hospital], it wouldn’t have been complicated.”

Zelenskiy made the comments during a two-day trip to the Khmelnytskyi region last week.
