The World Health Organization (WHO) says the person diagnosed with coronavirus in Egypt is no longer carrying the virus.

He was on his way to recovery but would remain in quarantine until the 14-day period was over and would undergo further tests to ensure he had fully recuperated, WHO spokesman Tarik Jašarević said.

Last week, Egypt’s health ministry described the person as a foreigner, without disclosing his nationality.

He was the first person confirmed to have coronavirus in Africa.
