"If any person suspects of appearance of symptoms of coronavirus in his body, and if he made a journey in the recent past, then he should call the emergency medical aid service", said Vasif Aliyev, head of TABIB’s Working Group, member of the Operative Task Force under the Cabinet of Ministers of Azerbaijan, APA reports.

He said in such case, a doctor wearing a special mask will visit the patient at home and will examine him, will take swab sample and will send it to relevant institutions: "That sample is sent to the Center for Combating Specially Dangerous Diseases. But no person can independently go to that Center and get himself checked in this way because a mess can develop in such case. That person should be under doctor’s control. There are so many people in the country, if every person with high temperature gets himself checked in such a way, then a disorder can develop. Such a prescription should be given by a doctor. After taking a swab sample from a person suspected of coronavirus infection, that person is taken under quarantine".
