It is reported that a child has no symptoms of the disease. The decision to hold the test for coronavirus was tied with her travel to one of the countries with a high risk of infection.
Initially, due to the absence of the symptoms, the Health Ministry of Brazil even refused to include the patient in the list of countrymen who are confirmed to be infected with the coronavirus.
This decision caused a wide public resonance – press and social networks accused the ministry of irresponsible attitude to the spread of the virus. In a few hours, Brazil Health Ministry held a consultation with the specialists and stated that from now on it considers the case of a 13-year-old patient as officially confirmed. The ministry noted that the absence of symptoms might be tied with the taking medicines prescribed for a teen due to trauma. Considering new data, the number of people infected with coronavirus in Brazil increased up to four people.
