Video: Health minister says there is no cause for panic over coronavirus in Belarus

There is no cause for panic over Belarus’ first case of the novel coronavirus, Health Minister Uladzimir Karanik told reporters in Minsk on Friday.

“All of us need to calm down,” he said. “If there are some problems concerning the spread of coronavirus from abroad, we are more than ready today, even more than a week ago.”

An Iranian student of Belarusian National Technical University on February 27 tested positive for coronavirus, now formally known as Covid-19, and was placed in the Minsk Infectious Disease Hospital. He arrived in Belarus on a flight from Baku, Azerbaijan, on February 22.
