Minister of Public Administration Jaak Aab (Center) will take over the prime minister's duties on Wednesday while Kaja Kallas recovers from coronavirus.
Kallas announced she tested positive for COVID-19 on Monday and has been working from home since. Aab, as deputy prime minister, will take her place in the Riigikogu's question time session on Wednesday.
In a statement, Kallas said: "Today I plan to take a day to rest, as is usual during an illness. At the same time, I am available if necessary and will keep up to date with what is happening in the country. I am monitoring my health responsibly and want to return to work virtually as soon as possible,"
