President of the Russian Biathlon Union (RBU) Vladimir Drachev said that the test of the 21-year-old world champion among juniors Anastasia Khaliullina on coronavirus turned out to be positive.
In mid-March, Khaliullina returned from Austria, where the competitions were held, after which she was at home on self-isolation.
“We were told that the test with Anastasia gave a positive result.
Now the reserve trainers are collecting complete information, during the day we will have a complete picture. Now Nastya and her mother Catherine are in the hospital.
I talked with Nastya, she says that the disease has passed, there are no symptoms. Most likely, the whole illness that went away within 3-4 days went away at home.
There was a runny nose, cough, fever. Now there are residual effects.
In fact, she recovered at home. I repeat, we are waiting for the final information, including from the doctors, ”said Drachev.
Haliullina, Junior World Champion, was hospitalized with suspected coronavirus
Anastasia Khaliullina: “I do not get coronavirus. I was taken to the hospital because of the carelessness of the doctor. ”
