The Ministry of Health has denied rumors about the presence of patients infected with coronavirus in city hospital No. 16 in Tashkent.
Earlier, there was information in the media that three people infected with coronavirus were admitted to the city hospital No. 16.
“The administration of the medical institution refused to confirm this information. The authorities are also keeping silent for now,” the media said then.
As the press service of the Health Ministry reported, the above information is not true and it is a false report.
It should be recalled that recently, Health Minister of Uzbekistan Alisher Shodmanov denied rumors that Uzbekistan is hiding information about the coronavirus.
The most important thing is not to believe in misleading rumors and take precautions. We are not hiding the disease, it is impossible to hide it. However, I would recommend citizens not to travel abroad, if it is not urgent.
We publicly declare all restrictive measures and ask you to understand them correctly. If our citizens take all precautions, I hope we will prevent the entry of coronavirus into Uzbekistan,” Shodmanov said.
