There is no coronavirus, that’s for sure. This is the first thing I asked, what worried me, Adabashyan told KP.RU. According to him, during hospitalization, Mikhalkov was tested for COVID-19, it came back negative.
According to the interlocutor of the publication, most likely, Mikhalkov has one of the variations of the flu or a cold, the director has a fever, but there are no tragic consequences for health. At least that’s what Adabashyan claims.
He is a childhood friend of Mikhalkov’s. The public knows him for his role as Barrymore in the film about the hound of Baskervilles. Now Adabashyan is the only one who communicates with the media about Mikhalkov’s health, the director’s family and the press service refrain from commenting. The only official message was that Mikhalkov had the flu. It was previously reported that Mikhalkov was in intensive care with bilateral pneumonia.
