“Since the pandemic spread, China had sent protocols to all countries, including Azerbaijan, via the embassies. We use the methods which are used abroad,” Zaur Aliyev, the Chairman of the Executive Board of the State Agency on Mandatory Health Insurance, said at the briefing of the Operational Headquarters under the Cabinet of Ministers.
According to him, sending SMS to those with negative test results has already been tested: “However, there was a delay due to technical problems. The problems are being eliminated, and SMS will be sent soon.”
The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) emerged in late 2019 in China’s Hubei province, and the virus has spread to 212 countries and territories since then.
To date, COVID-19 cases have reached 3,756,264 globally, resulting in 1,258,368 recoveries and over 259,436 deaths.
On February 11, the WHO officially named the 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) as COVID-19, and on March 11, declared it a pandemic.
