Ontario’s chief medical health officer said today that a patient with the novel coronavirus has recovered from the virus.
“The case has had two negative tests at least 24 hours apart and is therefore considered to be resolved. This means the individual is no longer infectious with the 2019 novel coronavirus,” Dr. David Williams said in a statement.
Seven cases of 2019 novel coronavirus have been confirmed in Canada, according to government figures. Three of the cases are in Ontario, with four cases in British Columbia.
The Canadian government has warned its citizens against all travel to Hubei province. It said the risk of the new coronavirus spreading within Canada remained low.
