Coronavirus Positive Man dies on a Way to Hospital in Bosnia and Herzegovina


A man from Gornji Vakuf/Uskoplje, who died in an ambulance, was positive for a coronavirus, Sead Karakas, director of the Public Health Office of Central Bosnia (SBZ), told reporters in Travnik on Monday, Vijesti.ba news portal reports.

A man born in 1954 was admitted to the Ambulance Service in Gornji Vakuf / Uskoplje and died on the way to Travnik Hospital.

“We had a feeling that he should be tested, we did it, and we got a positive result. He was not in self-isolation, nor had confirmed contacts with someone who was coronavirus positive. It is up to us to investigate who is the zero case from which he became infected and what are the possible contacts,” Karakas told reporters.

Karakas stressed that 15 samples were sent to the Clinical Center of the University of Sarajevo (KCUS) on Sunday for testing in Central Bosnia and Herzegovina, and that two were positive.

Another case of coronavirus infection was confirmed in Novi Travnik, which concerns a person associated with the Tuzla cluster. With two new cases of a virus infection in the SBZ, a man from Novi Travnik, who participated in a celebration at the Igman company in Konjic, had a positive test earlier.
