“I would like to inform you that the citizen was checked by our border guards at the border, who were wearing special clothes, because their health is very important to us. They follow our instructions, this reduces their risk of infection, but nonetheless, these customs officers are now uunder supervision and they will also be placed in quarantine. At this stage, the patient is in the infectious hospital. His health at this stage is not in any danger.
