A new coronavirus was detected in the samples of two employees of the Federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) who tested passengers for symptoms of the illness at the Los Angeles International Airport, California, as Reuters reports.
Both health workers whose test results proved positive were involved in the care and screening of passengers arriving in the United States from China and other countries.
The employees of CDC were ordered to voluntarily comply with the quarantine regime until March 17.
As we reported before, in the coming weeks, member countries of the European Union expect a surge in the number of cases of infection with the coronavirus Covid-19. EU Commissioner for Health Stella Kyriakides stated this.
In her view, the upcoming surge will be a test for health systems. At the same time, the Commissioner emphasized the need to show solidarity and act together.
As of the morning of March 7, in the laboratory of the Center for Public Health of Ukraine's Healthcare Ministry, 16 samples of materials were examined; all studies yielded a negative result.
