Virus free within days
According to De Block, the infected person is in good health and does not show any symptoms of disease. After a few days, he or she will be virus-free, reported a virologist who was present at the press conference. The person will have to stay in quarantine for the full two weeks.
No reason to panic
They are tested daily to see if they are also infected with the corona virus. The virologist considers that chance very small. The first tests were negative, and it is expected that it will stay that way.
De Block says there is no reason to panic. As long as the measures that normally apply to the flu season are adhered to, nothing is wrong. That means sneezing into handkerchiefs, wash your hands well and stay home if you feel sick.
