MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin is back at work after being diagnosed with the new coronavirus, the Kremlin said on Tuesday.

The Kremlin said Russian President Vladimir Putin had signed a decree cancelling a temporary transfer of Mishustin’s duties to First Deputy Prime Minister Andrey Belousov, who had been Russia’s acting prime minister since April 30.
