NHK -- Aug 21
The Japanese government says Prime Minister Kishida Fumio has been infected with the coronavirus.

The Cabinet Secretariat says Kishida developed a slight fever and cough on Saturday night, and took a PCR test on Sunday morning.

The positive result was confirmed on Sunday afternoon. Kishida is currently recuperating at his official residence.

Government officials say Kishida has only been in close contact with his wife Yuko and other family members.

The infection route remains unknown.

Kishida has been on summer vacation for the past week and was due to return to work on Monday, but is considering working online.

Kishida will cancel his trip to Tunisia for the Tokyo International Conference on African Development, or TICAD, later this month. He may attend the meeting online.
