CORONAVIRUS: Three New Positive Cases are Identified in Monaco
The Principality's health authorities were informed on Thursday 9 April that the analysis of three samples proved positive for COVID-19.
This therefore brings the number of people affected by the Coronavirus to 84, including five patients who have now recovered.
Eleven people are receiving treatment in hospital, three of whom are in intensive care.
It should be noted that the people tested and hospitalised are not all resident in the Principality.
In accordance with the principle adopted by the health authorities in the Principality of Monaco, only patients with severe COVID-19 symptoms are being hospitalised.
People with mild symptoms are asked to self-isolate at home while being medically monitored. To date, 101 patients are being cared for by the Home Patient Follow-up Centre.
The aim of this approach is to avoid overburdening hospitals and to care for these patients in the city in a way that is efficient and comfortable for them.
The Prince's Government recalls the importance of continuing to take action and respecting the precautionary health measures and travel restrictions.
