Egypt Now free of COVID-9 as Africa’s first Coronavirus victim recovers
The World Health Organisation says the person who had been diagnosed with Coronavirus in Egypt is no longer carrying the virus and is well on his way to recovery.
WHO spokesman Tarik Jašarević, however, said the person would remain in quarantine until the 14-day period was over and would undergo further tests to ensure he had fully recuperated.
Egypt’s health ministry had described the person as a foreigner without revealing their nationality. This was the first confirmed case of Coronavirus on the African continent.
