The Italian patient with coronavirus in Tenerife (Spain) has good health

Santa Cruz of Tenerife /  The Italian doctor who tested positive for a first Wuhan coronavirus analysis is in good health and isolated in the Candelaria hospital in the capital of Tenerife, in the Canary Islands, Spain.

Official sources have confirmed to EFE that a relative of the Italian patient from Tenerife who accompanied him is also under control and that he has been negative in the first analysis for the detection of the coronavirus. The clients and workers of the hotel, in the municipality of Adeje, are under sanitary surveillance.

The patient from the Italian region of Lombardy went with fever to a private clinic in the south of Tenerife and from there he was transferred to the Candelaria hospital, and is awaiting a second result from the National Center for Microbiology of the Institute of Health Carlos III.

Italy: seven dead and 231 infected

The coronavirus continues its expansion in Italy, the third most affected state in the world, with seven dead and at least 231 infected, according to the latest official figures, and is creating situations of chaos in the north of the country, where the vast majority of the cases, especially in Lombardy.

This is the region most affected by the epidemic, with 178 of the positive cases caused by the virus originated in China and where there are ten of the eleven municipalities declared in quarantine by the authorities, near Milan.

Precisely the control measures around these locations, where 50,000 people live, are causing some situations of chaos, as in the case of rail connections.

In his usual press conference since the outbreak of this outbreak in Italy, the head of Civil Protection, Angelo Borrelli, considered that the numbers of deceased and infected are reasonable and do not justify changing the consideration of this virus “from epidemic to pandemic.”

Italy is still looking for the one that would be the zero patient, from whom the outbreak emerged, and tries to explain the possible connections between the two great outbreaks of Lombardy and Veneto.
