Nicaragua reports the 9th case of Covid-19 in the country

The Ministry of Health (Minsa) reported on Saturday a new positive case of the new coronavirus covid-19 in Nicaragua, bringing the number of contagion to nine.

According to information from the Minsa, the patient is “a 59-year-old man, in contact with other nationalities, who is stable and cared for.”

Nicaragua officials are adamant all nine cases are imported. “We do not have local community spreading,” Dr. Carlos Sáenz, secretary-general of the Minsa, said in a confused conference.

Saenz read a prepared statement detailing, a number of the cases, most in stable condition or in recovery, only one patient is in delicate condition, a  39-year-old woman who is being well care for.

The first case of coronavirus was reported on March 18, that of a 40-year-old man who contracted the virus in Panama.

“This is a 40-year-old ‘brother’ who traveled to Panama between the 13th and 14th of this month (March), and who returned to our country on the 15th, that is, on Sunday, by air,” said vice-president Rosario Murillo that day. He has since recovered.

As is typical in Nicaragua, officials do not take questions and typically do not answer queries that are inconvenient to the government, such as the number of cases Cuba is reporting of being imported by Nicaraguans visiting the Caribbean island nation.
