If so, he must have shown some symptoms when he was in Bali,” he added.Suarjaya said there was a small possibility that the man was infected before he went to Bali.”However, we will recheck again the facts. We will follow up the information. We will trace all places he visited. […] And of course, we will raise our alertness,” he said.

The incubation period of the coronavirus is 14 days. We don’t know yet where exactly he was infected. We don’t know yet whether he was infected with the coronavirus before he went to Bali. There is a possibility that he got the virus when he returned to China,” Suarjaya said. Currently two Chinese patients are being treated in the isolation room of Sanglah Hospital in Bali. The two patients were admitted last night. Since the COVID-19 outbreak the hospital has treated 32 patients who have shown symptoms of the disease, all previous 30 tests have come back negative.Authorities in Anhui province, China, reported that the Chinese national who visited Bali late last month had tested positive for the virus that causes COVID-19.The administration announced via Weibo on Feb. 6 that the Huainan Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported on Feb. 5 that Jin flew on Lion Air flight JT2618 from Wuhan – the epicenter of the COVID-19 outbreak – to Bali on Jan. 22. The patient stayed on the island for about a week before flying on Garuda Indonesia flight GA858 from Bali to Shanghai on Jan. 28.The patient was found to have been infected with the disease by Huainan CDC according to the Weibo post.“For passengers on the aforementioned flights, please enact preventative measures immediately,” wrote the Anhui administration on its Weibo account, which is a local version of Twitter.”Please don’t go out for a while and if you get a fever, go to the nearest hospital,” the statement said. “Please use masks when you travel to the medical center and don’t use public transportation,” it went on.

Unfortunately, they can pose significant fire and electric shock hazards if not used properly. Fire and electrical hazards can be caused by space heaters without adequate safety features, space heaters placed near combustibles, or space heaters that are improperly plugged in.Safety should always be a top consideration when using space heaters. Here are some tips for keeping your home safe and warm when it’s cold outside:Make sure your space heater has the label showing that it is listed by a recognized testing laboratory.Before using any space heater, read the manufacturer’s instructions and warning labels carefully.Inspect heaters for cracked or broken plugs or loose connections before each use. If frayed, worn or damaged, do not use the heater.Never leave a space heater unattended. Turn it off when you’re leaving a room or going to sleep, and don’t let pets or children play too close to a space heater.Space heaters are only meant to provide supplemental heat and should never be used to warm bedding, cook food, dry clothing or thaw pipes.Install smoke alarms on every floor of your home and outside all sleeping areas and test them once a month.Place space heaters on level, flat surfaces. Never place heaters on cabinets, tables, furniture, or carpet, which can overheat and start a fire.Always unplug and safely store the heater when it is not in use.
