According to Nemkov, Emelianenko is doing well. The soldier said that Fedor could be released home on Monday, January 25.
“Fedor was admitted to the hospital because of the coronavirus. Now he feels well, he will be discharged soon. Next week, on Monday, the last CT scan will be done – according to its results, they should be allowed to go home,” Vadim Nemkov said in a commentary to the Championship.
