Ábrahám Vass 2020.02.25.

After the near emergency situation in Italy, the Chinese-originating virus has appeared in Central European countries, too, as both Austria and Croatia announced the appearance of the coronavirus.

First, it was the governor of the federal state of Tyrol, which on Tuesday early afternoon confirmed that two people have been diagnosed with coronavirus. Both have mild symptoms and are being isolated at an Innsbruck hospital.

Shortly afterwards, Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenković also declared the arrival of the virus to Hungary’s southern neighbors. He reported that a young man who was in Milan between the 19th and 21st of February, has been diagnosed with the virus, marking the first case in the Balkans. The Croatian Health Minister added that the young man is currently in quarantine, and his condition is satisfactory. Plenković also warned against panic and claimed that they are prepared for an emergency situation.
