Hoti, 44, said on his Facebook page that he has “no symptoms, except for a very mild cough.”

“I’m in isolation for the next two weeks. I will fulfill my obligations from home,” said Hoti, voted into office on June 3 following a protracted power struggle in the landlocked Balkan nation of 1.8 million people.

Nearly 250 people have died in Kosovo from Covid-19.
