The man from Nitra did not have a South African virus mutation – Home – News


The man who succumbed to the coronavirus in a Nitra hospital was not infected with a South African mutation.

This was announced on the social network on Friday night by the Minister of Health Marek Krajčí (OĽaNO). The man arrived in Slovakia from Hurghada, Egypt. He had health problems and came to the teaching hospital in Nitra himself. There, doctors found out he had Covid-19.

A few days later, the man succumbed to the infection. According to Krajčí, the man was not infected with the South African mutation of the virus, which is proving to be more dangerous and infectious than the British mutation, which has been in Slovakia for several months.

“Boris Klempa from the Biomedical Center of the Slovak Academy of Sciences provided me with information, who carried out the sequencing of the sampled sample,” Krajčí specified.

The head of the health department recommends not traveling abroad at all. Since Wednesday, February 17, Slovakia has been tightening up measures for passengers coming to the country from abroad. Border crossings are being tightened. Everyone who comes from abroad must be quarantined for a fortnight. It is recommended to pass the PCR test on the eighth day at the earliest. If the test is negative, the quarantine is terminated.

Those who do not pass the test must remain in isolation for two weeks.
