Coronavirus

Monaco officials on the coronavirus - The health department of Monaco has released a press release concerning the current coronavirus outbreak with the following information.

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses known to cause illnesses ranging from colds to more serious illnesses. The new coronavirus is a new strain of coronavirus that has never been identified in humans before and therefore the Department of Social Affairs and Health is being kept informed on the situation.

Monaco, member of the World Health Organization, is informed in real time, within the framework of the International Health Regulations, of the measures to be taken depending on the evolution of the illness. The Health Action Department also monitors the information provided from the French and Italian Ministries of Health.

Only people exposed for less than 14 days, having stayed in China or having been in close contact with a person infected with the virus and having a low respiratory infection (cough and fever) are considered suspicious. People who think they are infected should not go to their doctor or the Hospital but stay at home. They must call the emergency services in Monaco (18 or 112) who are in contact with a specialist doctor from the Princess Grace Hospital Center who will determine what action to take.

Procedures to be applied in the presence of a suspicious case have been sent by the Directorate of Sanitary Action to the Services and to the health professionals concerned. It is advisable to avoid going to risk areas if moving is not essential. The Monegasque authorities continue to monitor the situation closely.

For further information: Public Health Inspector Doctor: Doctor Eric VOIGLIO (98.98.48.50 week days - evoiglio@gouv.mc) or at 06.78.63.85.68 (weekends and holidays).
