He announced he had suffered a relapse of a chronic bowel condition. He stated that he had ‘lost a lot of my energy and strength’ and would need regular medical treatment that would prevent him from tackling the coronavirus crisis.
He told a press conference:
I have been struggling with my illness and I have to get treatment. Poor health should not lead to wrong political decisions.
