Fico recovered from flu and back to work

On April 16, Prime Minister Robert Fico returned to work after a week-long bout of flu, his spokesperson Silvia Glendová said.

Due to his illness, Fico couldn't participate in the gala opening of the Slovak National Theatre on April 14 and his visits to Argentina, Brazil and Chile, originally scheduled for April 9-16, had to be postponed.

Fico will take part in a meeting of the ruling coalition council today and will lead the cabinet meeting on April 18.

The co-ruling Movement for a Democratic Slovakia Chairman Vladimír Mečiar has returned to active political life as well, following a quadruple by-pass.
