A man who was placed in isolation at an Egyptian hospital had tested negative to the disease but six days after what was described as a good news for the continent, Algerian authorities announced that an Italian citizen who arrived in the country on February 17 tested positive to the disease.

“One case was confirmed positive for coronavirus (COVID-19), out of two suspected cases (both) of Italian nationality,” the North African country’s health ministry said in a broadcast.

The victim’s identity was not stated and the hospital where he is currently being treated was not made public.

“I’ll start taking medicine. Generally, I feel fine. I just felt a bit tired, I had a fever, and it will drop.”
