This body ordered to deepen health statements, monitoring of body temperature and medical check-ups to travelers from the affected nations arriving at any point of entrance to the national territory.

The measures will be applied with greater rigor to children and adolescents with symptoms such as abdominal pain, vomiting or diarrhea, and some hospitals were also designated to treat such cases.

According to the National Health Commission, China has so far not reported any patients with the rare hepatitis, but continues to monitor the issue and is gathering as much information as possible to be prepared in time and to know how to proceed in the event of detection of the pathology.

More than 200 cases of the disease were reported this month in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Spain, Germany, Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Denmark, Slovenia, France, Ireland, Norway, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal and Romania, as well as in the Americas and Asia.

The European Union health authorities indicated that no hepatitis A, B, C, E and D viruses were identified during laboratory tests, but the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, which causes Covid-19, was found in some samples.
