Coronavirus spreads from Italy to Croatia, Switzerland and Austria

PRAVDA Tuesday, 25 February 2020
Croatia became the first country in the Balkans, where a case of coronavirus Covid-19 infection was reported, Croatian television and radio company HRT said, citing Croatia's Minister of Health Vili Beros. According to the minister, the infected man, a resident of the Croatian capital city of Zagreb, visited Milan, Italy. "This disease is similar to flu. No higher incidence or complications are expected. Health authorities are ready to do everything to ensure the safety of our people," the official said. On Tuesday, it also became known that two cases of coronavirus infection were confirmed in Austria in the federal land of Tyrol, ORF reports. Both patients are 24 year-old Italians who live in the city of Innsbruck. Both men sought medical help themselves, complaining of fever; the two men were currently isolated in a clinic in Innsbruck. Coronavirus infection was also confirmed in the canton of Ticino in Switzerland, according to Swiss news portal Blick. This is the first case of coronavirus infection in this country. The patient is a 70-year-old Swiss man, who was about to be discharged from a hospital in Lugano, when a positive result came. About 300 people have been tested in Switzerland so far, but none of them proved to be infected with the new virus.
