A Belgian citizen who has been in the country for several days tested positive for the coronavirus, said Health Minister Eteni Longondo.

The person was put in quarantine in a hospital in the capital city Kinshasa, he added.

''I would like to announce to the Congolese population that we diagnosed this morning the first case of coronavirus. It has been discovered in a Belgian national who has come to stay here for a few days,'' Longondo said.

But he said there is no need to panic because the situation is under control and urged the public to calm down but put in practice preventive measures, especially those involving cleanliness.
