The National Center for Disease Control announced that it had not recorded any cases of Coronavirus in Libya, “based on data received from the alert and rapid response network of hospitals and health centers, and data received from the International Health Supervision Office through the border point.”

The National Center announced, on Tuesday, that it has taken a sample of a Libyan citizen who arrived from Italy via Tunisia on suspicion of contracting the new Coronavirus. It pointed out that the laboratory’s examination of the sample came negative.

The center clarified that the International Health Supervision Bureau at the Mitiga International Airport in Tripoli notified it of a suspected case of the Coronavirus for the Libyan traveler, according to a statement published by the center.

“In coordination with the Ministry of Health, the NCDC referred the case to one of the designated quarantine rooms, took a laboratory sample, and sent it to the center’s community health reference laboratory, which confirmed that the case was free of the virus.

The NCDC has declared earlier that it “has raised the level of preparedness of the network of early warning and rapid response, and intensified awareness campaigns and health education.”
