Chinese student cured of coronavirus in Russia’s Tyumen
A Chinese student, who was diagnosed with the novel coronavirus, has been discharged from the hospital in Tyumen, regional Health Department chief Inna Kulikova said.
"Her lab tests indicate that she has recovered. We have discharged her today," she said at a briefing.
Head of the Russian consumer watchdog in the Tuymen region Galina Sharukho added that the Chinese student would continue attending university classes. "The Chinese national poses no danger to other people," TASS cited her as saying.
Kulikova pointed out that the student had received the usual treatment for flu symptoms.
Another four Chinese students were taken to the hospital along with the sick girl. "The students who arrived on the same flight from China remain in quarantine, and once the quarantine is over, they will be discharged. They have tested negative for the coronavirus," Kulikova pointed out.
The total number of coronavirus cases recorded in China has exceeded 42,700, while the death toll has passed 1,000, while more than 4,000 patients have recovered from the virus. Coronavirus cases have also been reported in 24 other countries.
Two coronavirus cases were identified in Russia’s Trans-Baikal and Tyumen regions on January 31. Both cases involved Chinese who were taken to the hospital. According to medical sources, both of them were infected with a mild form of the coronavirus.
