Czech President Milos Zeman appointed Petr Fiala as the country’s new prime minister on Sunday, November 28, while sitting inside a plexiglass box after he had tested positive for COVID-19.
The ceremony was initially scheduled to take place on Friday, but it was postponed due to the president’s positive COVID-19 test.
Zeman then spent two days in hospital. He was asymptomatic, according to doctors quoted in local media. Credit: Petr Fiala via Storyful
