London, 24 February 2020:
Libya’s Tripoli based Ministry of Health denied today the presence of any cases of the Corona virus in Libya so far.
The denial came after some unofficial reports claimed that some cases were identified in some hospitals.
The Ministry reminded the public that its National Centre for Disease Control is the only entity under it that is authorised to register and diagnose any cases of Corona virus.
Meanwhile, in its news bulletin yesterday, Libya’s National Centre for Disease Control said that it has taken a number of measures, including: the formation of the National Committee to Confront the new Corona virus; the continuous monitoring of the global epidemiological situation; the activation of thermal camera detection for passengers at all ports; the preparation of a medical manual for those working in the field for raising the alert level at the alarm network and early and rapid response and intensified health awareness and education campaigns.
