TRAVNIK, March 30 (FENA) - A man from Gornji Vakuf / Uskoplje, who died in an ambulance, was positive for coronavirus, Sead Karakaš, Director of the Institute of Public Health of the Central Bosnia Canton, told reporters in Travnik today.

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

“We thought he should be tested, therefore we did it, and we received a positive finding. He did not have an epidemiologically positive survey, 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 first infected and what are the possible contacts,” Karakaš told reporters.

Karakaš stressed that 15 samples were sent to the Clinical Center of the University of Sarajevo (KCUS) yesterday for testing and that two were positive.

Another case of coronavirus infection was confirmed in Novi Travnik, and it is a person associated with the Tuzla cluster.

With two new cases of a virus infection in the Canton, a man from Novi Travnik, who participated in a celebration at the Igman company in Konjic, had a positive test earlier.
