The WHO noted that the infected people may stay in the incubation period; they may have no visible symptoms due to the earlier stage of the disease.
“Temperature screening alone, at exit or entry, is not an effective way to stop international spread, since infected individuals may be in incubation period, may not express apparent symptoms early on in the course of the disease, or may dissimulate fever through the use of antipyretics; in addition, such measures require substantial investments for what may bear little benefits,” the WHO stated.
As we reported, Ukraine's Healthcare Ministry expects the results of four tests for Chinese coronavirus, or Covid-2019. The potential patients are three foreigners and a Ukrainian citizen who returned from Italy.
Earlier, German medics confirmed the first case of COVID-19, the Chinese coronavirus in Berlin. The doctors began to check the people who contacted the infected person.
