Turkey confirms first case of coronavirus in the country

Turkish Health Minister Fahrettin Koca confirmed on Wednesday that the first case of coronavirus was detected in Turkey.

“A male citizen tested positive for the coronavirus in the evening,” Health Minister Koca said at a press conference in Ankara.

“The infected individual – he added – contracted the virus after returning from Europe. He has been completely isolated.”

The Health Minister continued: “The patient’s general condition is good. All of his family members and those who came into contact with him are under surveillance.”

As an early diagnosis was made, said Koca, “if there is a virus infection in the country, it is very limited. One or more cases of the coronavirus should not be considered an epidemic.”
