Berlin (dpa) – After testing negative for the coronavirus, 20 Germans who had visited China were released on Sunday from a two-week quarantine in Berlin at a German Red Cross (DRK) clinic.
“We are very relieved that coronavirus was not detected in any of the returnees. We are happy that the isolation could be ended. The burden on all concerned was enormous,” DRK Secretary General Christian Reuter said in a statement.
The fourth and final test for the SARS-CoV-2 virus on Friday was negative, health officials said. The 16 adults and four children had spent a long time in the Chinese city of Wuhan, which is heavily affected by the virus, and were evacuated.
