Chinese man suspected for coronavirus isolated in Attikon hospital proves negative

Featured Chinese man suspected for coronavirus isolated in Attikon hospital proves negative

As of Tuesday night (11/2), a 33-year-old Chinese man has been in isolation at Atticon Hospital as part of a search to determine if he has been infected by the COVID-19 virus, as the new coronavirus was officially named yesterday. As of noon Wednesday he proved negative to COVID-19.

The 33-year-old traveled from China to Greece and developed symptoms of infection (cough and fever).

He first visited a private clinic, but both his history and the outbreak of coronavirus prompted doctors to act in a timely manner, notifying the National Public Health Organization and ambulance service EKAB. The Health Ministry's action plan was immediately implemented. A special-purpose ambulance arrived and took the patient, transporting him to Atticon, one of the country's 13 reference hospitals.

Coronavirus: The two scenarios for the test results

In this case the alarm for the coronavirus will expire. However, if the 33-year-old's samples were positive, then the authorities would have to act promptly to minimize any chance of the new coronavirus being transmitted further into the country.
