Two doses of COVID-19 vaccine helped former Interior Minister Avakov to survive the coronavirus in a mild form. This became known from an interview of the former official to the channel "Ukraine 24".
"I feel good. Not as good as in my youth, but I feel good. I had two vaccinations, and due to this my illness passed in a calm atmosphere. So everyone who hears me, I want to say: you need to protect yourself, you need to be vaccinated, "- said Arsen Avakov.
The ex-minister said that he had a high body temperature for a few days and "a couple of days it was unpleasant, but in general - everything is fine".
The news about Avakov's illness appeared on October 22. During his self-isolation, he joked and reported on social media to those who wished him dead - "enemies will not wait".
Already on October 30, the ex-official told about his recovery.
