"I can repeat the same. If doctors say I need to rest and not to be at work, I will do that, if that is necessary in the future, ten days, two days, 15 days, as the treatment cycle was finished some time ago and now I need to recover," Skvernelis told a press conference.

The prime minister is back to work after being on sick leave since Nov 20.

The prime minister says he needs to limit his contact with people due to weaker immunity. "An infection, bacteria or virus now pose the biggest threat for me," he said. "There are so many people and I don’t know who is carrying what."

Skvernelis announced his cancer diagnosis in late August.
