The group of Spaniards from Wuhan (China), the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak, which is under quarantine at the Gómez Ulla Hospital in Madrid, will be discharged today as sources from Moncloa have confirmed. None of the returnees have had symptoms during these 14 days of quarantine and all have been negative in the successive tests that have been done to rule out a contagion by the coronavirus, baptized by the World Health Organization (WHO) as Covid-19 .
The group, formed by about twenty people, arrived in Madrid on January 31 in a plane chartered by the United Kingdom and from Wuhan; After landing at the military base of Torrejón de Ardoz (Madrid), he was transferred to Gómez Ulla to spend the 14 days of quarantine that mark the security protocols.
During these days they have made a normal life, within the income limitations, on the 17th floor of the Gómez Ulla (not in the High Level Insulation Unit that the center also has) and have been able to move freely receiving even the visit of relatives.
They have been subjected to periodic medical checks that have demonstrated the absence of the virus, said Manuel Vela, coach of the Wuhan Zall Football Club, who explained that at the beginning they took the temperature three times a day, but “as a result of everyone giving negative in a DNA test, they went down to a daily intake. ”
On the other hand, the patient affected by coronavirus in the Canary Islands, who is still admitted to the General Hospital of La Gomera and has been positive in the samples taken so far, continues under analytical supervision and monitoring and continues his favorable evolution, without presenting any symptoms, as reported by the Ministry of Health.
Likewise, the four traveling companions who remain in the municipality of Hermigua continue with the home monitoring. These are the four men who presented symptoms and who tested negative in two tests.
