In a statement released on Friday, Febuary 14, the authorities revealed they have notified the World Health Organization and the patient has been placed in isolation in a hospital for treatment and monitoring.

 

The nationality of the person was not given in the joint statement with the population ministry, which added that they had shown no “symptoms”.
