The World Health Organization (WHO) says the person diagnosed with coronavirus in Egypt is no longer carrying the virus.
“He will remain in quarantine until the full 14-day period is over and will be undergoing further required tests to ensure he was fully recovered,” WHO spokeswoman Inas Hamam said in an email.
Egypt confirmed the case, its first, last week. It remains the only known instance of the new coronavirus in Africa. State TV earlier said a foreigner thought to be carrying the coronavirus had tested negative, raising questions about his initial infection.
He was the first person confirmed to have coronavirus in Africa.
