Traces of COVID-19—the new coronavirus that has been diagnosed in tens of thousands of people—have been detected in recovered patients Zhao Jianping, the head of a team tackling COVID-19 in Hubei province—the epicenter of the outbreak—said some patients who recovered

The government will extend the requirement of medical certificates and health insurance from Sunday to cover all visitors to the country regardless of nationalities to curb the spread of the coronavirus.

As of Thursday, Chile has seen 1,274 recover from the deadly virus.

"As of next week we'll issue a certificate. These people can be a great help to the community," said Jaime Manalich. 

Chile has had almost 6,000 infections and 57 deaths from COVID-19.

Manalich expects a "slight increase" over the coming weeks.

Corona parties ordered: medical professionals ask for more instead of less contact

 Corona parties ordered: medical professionals ask for more instead of less contact © provided by men's business Ansgar Lohse Three experts, four opinions - this is how it happens to normal consumers these days. Corona also divides medicine, it seems. virologist calls for corona parties Ansgar Lohse is a well-respected doctor and head of the University Hospital Eppendorf, or UKE for short. He already had Ebola patients from West Africa and other serious virological cases on site. So you should assume that this man knows what he's talking about.

Health officials say China cannot afford to let their guard down over coronavirus after new cases began appearing including one doctor in Wuhan province, the original epicenter of the pandemic.

Chile . issued 14 days quarantine rules for US citizens entering the US from China (mandatory if entering from the Hubei province). issued an order to deny entry to foreigners who have traveled to China within the past two weeks.

People will be considered to have recovered from the virus if they suffered from COVID-19 but two weeks later tested negative.

"What interests us is saying that this person cannot contract the coronavirus again, because they are already immune, therefore that person can be of enormous help to communities, because they don't represent a risk," said Manalich.

The question of whether those who have contracted the virus are immune once recovered is still being studied elsewhere, including in Germany, which is planning a mass study with 100,000 people.

But even if the study is approved, initial readings might not be completely reliable.

Tests currently available can show false positives for coronavirus antibodies, as 90 percent of adults already have immunity against common, harmless viruses from the same family.

Chile has had a low number of deaths in relation to the number of infections, Manalich said.

The country has carried out a huge number of tests each day, with almost 8,000 on Wednesday and 70,000 since registering its first case on March 3.
