CORONAVIRUS: Two new positive cases identified in Monaco
The Principality’s health authorities were informed on Tuesday 7 April that the analysis of two samples proved positive for COVID-19.
This brings the number of people infected by coronavirus in the Principality to 79. Four patients have now recovered.
Nine people have been hospitalised, four of whom are in intensive care.
In accordance with the principle that has been adopted by the health authorities in the Principality of Monaco, only patients with severe COVID-19 symptoms are being hospitalised.
Those with minor symptoms are asked to self-isolate at home and will be subject to medical monitoring. A total of 103 patients are currently being monitored outside hospitals.
The aim of this approach is to avoid overburdening hospitals and to offer treatment for such patients in the city, in a way which is easy and comfortable for them.
The Prince’s Government would like to remind everyone of the importance of continuing to take action and complying with the precautionary health measures and travel restrictions.
