The National Institute of Public Health of Kosovo (NIPHK) has announced today that there are no cases of coronavirus in Kosovo yet.

In a press release published, the NIPHK announced that it had received information from the UCCK Infectious Disease Clinic today about three suspected cases of coronavirus COVID-19.

“The patients were screened by a team of infectologists at the Infectious Disease Clinic, at UCCK, and samples were taken for the laboratory testing on SARS-CoV-2 virus and Influenza A and B. The Molecular Microbiology Laboratory team, at NIPHK, has tested SARS CoV-2 virus and influenza A and B by the rRT-PCR method, for three patients. Tests have proved negative for SARS-CoV-2, meaning that all three patients are not infected with SARS-CoV-2, while two of them are B Influenza Positive.
