          Ministry of Health, Population and Hospital Reform

          Press release

          Algeria, February 25, 2020

          As of February 25, 2020, 134,802 cases and 2,698 deaths have been reported worldwide, of which 97% of cases and 99% of deaths have been reported in the Republic of China.

          We are currently witnessing the spread of the epidemic in 35 countries, especially the countries of the Mediterranean basin.

          According to the World Health Organization, Egypt, Algeria and South Africa are the countries most at risk of importing the Corona-19 virus in Africa, due to the importance of air transport with infected Chinese provinces and other countries where the virus is spreading. These three countries are also among the best countries in the continent equipped for early detection and care.

          The monitoring and warning system that was implemented at the national level allowed the discovery of two (02) cases that meet the definition of the suspected case (fever, respiratory symptoms, and the concept of travel to the Coronavirus transmission zone.

          The two suspected cases of Italian citizenship, aged 55 and 61, who have a common disease, have been taken care of, according to national guidelines.

          Today, Tuesday 25 February 2020, one positive case of corona virus has been confirmed and the other case is negative.

            Algeria: Italian carrier of coronavirus located in Ouargla and quarantined

            Published on : 02/27/2020 - 04:39

            In Algeria, a first case of coronavirus was confirmed on Tuesday 25 February by the authorities. On Wednesday, the authorities gave more details about this patient and insisted on the preventive measures put in place.

            With our correspondent in Algiers, Leïla Beratto

            The patient, an Italian in his sixties, entered Algeria on February 17 on the Milan-Rome-Algiers flight. The man is from the province of Bertonico, in Lombardy, one of the areas most affected by the virus in Italy, and he works for the Italian company ENI.

            The day after his arrival, he took a flight to Ouargla, 800 kilometers south of Algiers, where he worked on a gas field. According to his business, the man has been in solitary confinement since February 21 in the living base where he resides.

            The Algerian authorities have announced that they are looking for the other passengers on the flight from Italy. Only ten passengers have so far been identified and placed under medical surveillance.

            President Abdelmadjid Tebboune called for vigilance and Prime Minister Abdelaziz Djerad asked that the communication around the disease be made in a " serene " way, avoiding " any alarmism ". State media multiplied interviews with doctors and hospital officials throughout the day on Wednesday.

                  Coronavirus in Algeria: Two new suspected cases in Boufarik
                  Djamila Kourta
                  March 02, 2020 at 10 h 00 min


                  Two new cases of coronavirus contamination are strongly suspected in Boufarik, according to sources from the Institut Pasteur in Algeria.

                  They are a 23-year-old girl and her mother, and they have been in solitary confinement since last Friday at the EHS in Boufarik, in the service of infectious diseases.

                  The two were reportedly contaminated by a relative, a man from France, who visited them last week. During his stay in Algeria, this parent would have presented symptoms of a flu and being chronically ill, he preferred to return to France where he is currently hospitalized at the Salpêtrière hospital, in Paris, after having tested positive at Covid- 19.

                  It was after this that the two women went to the hospital for a consultation, where samples were taken, although they were asymptomatic (without symptoms).

                  Faced with the increase in the number of cases of coronavirus in Europe and particularly in Italy and in France, Algeria is already adopting preventive measures dictated in the recommendations of the WHO, particularly that which places the risk of spread of this new virus to "a very high level".

                  Moreover, the President of the Republic, Abdelmadjid Tebboune, gave firm instructions during a meeting of the High Security Council to maintain a high level of vigilance and an active mobilization of all the structures concerned to face up to any eventuality, following a presentation by the Prime Minister making an inventory on the virus in question, according to a press release from the Presidency of the Republic.

                  These instructions, which urge us to double our vigilance in the face of this epidemic, imply that no one is immune and that the appearance of new cases and foci of contamination cannot be ruled out. Yesterday, the Minister of Health, Population and Hospital Reform, Abderrahmane Benbouzid, went to the viral diseases department of the Specialized Hospital Establishment (EHS) for infectious diseases El Hadi Flici (ex-El Kettar) .

                  The Minister visited the various departments prepared to receive possible people affected by Covid-19. He said "all measures have been taken to deal with any new outbreaks" of the disease.

                  As he indicated that firm instructions were given to the various hospitals to acquire the necessary equipment, in particular the masks (half-mask filtering shell and the surgical masks with elastic), the overalls, the glasses, the gels and the sheets disposable, while reassuring that all the assessments of subjects who had contact with the Italian national suffering from coronavirus "turned out to be negative".

                  Algeria had raised its alert level and a global system has been in place since January to deal with the Covid-19 epidemic, which affects several countries, especially those in the Mediterranean basin, said the Minister of health. A toll-free number (3030), managed by doctors, has been made available to citizens as part of the prevention plan.

                  For its part, the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research has adopted preventive measures to ensure distance learning "in the event of the emergence of new cases of coronavirus in Algeria," reported the APS yesterday. "These measures will be operational from March 15," according to the ministry.

                  And to point out that the instruction relates to "the development of a platform guaranteeing the distance courses for a duration of at least one month". "The exceptional situation that the world is experiencing following a possible spread of the global epidemic compels (the ministry) to take an educational initiative by resorting to preventive measures guaranteeing the continuity of teaching", indicates the note addressed to presidents on Saturday regional conferences of universities and directors of university establishments, according to the same source.

                  To this end, the Minister called on the directors of university establishments and the presidents of scientific councils to raise awareness and mobilize their teaching colleagues to "adhere to this educational operation", stressing that the first concerned, namely "students, must adapt to this approach ”. This initiative consists of the online publication of searchable course content, covering a period of at least one month of teaching, on the establishment's website or in any other medium.

                  The same is true for tutorials "which will be accompanied by brief corrections". As it will be made available to students, following the same method, practical work that fits with this mode of teaching, adds the ministerial instruction.
