This was reported by the head of the WHO Representative Office in Uzbekistan Lianne Kuppens, Dunyo reports.
She recalled that the virus is contagious and has already hit six continents. Lianne Kuppens also reported that to date, no cases of coronavirus in Uzbekistan have been identified.

Dr. Kuppens called on Uzbek people to be vigilant, but not to panic.
“We need to be active,” she added.
The WHO representative emphasized that not a single country in the world, even the most developed one, could be fully prepared for coronavirus.
