Saskatchewan: First presumptive case of COVID-19

BY , Mar 12, 2020 9:31 PM - REPORT AN ERROR

Saskatchewan has announced its first presumptive case of COVID-19 the same day as the Juno Awards were cancelled over concerns about the virus.

Doctor Saqib Shahab, chief medical health officer, says the individual is in their 60s and recently travelled to Egypt.

Shahab says the person is in self-isolation at home and has had minimal contact with others.

Saskatchewan Health officials want all travellers to watch for signs of a cough or fever for two weeks and start self-isolating if they experience any symptoms.

So far at least 285 people have been tested for COVID-19.
