“Thus the 14 days incubation period since my last contact with him will finish tomorrow (16/3). I will continue to take the necessary precautions including self-isolation and personal hygiene. I am in contact with the State Health Department and will continue to follow their advice.

“Do not panic, take the necessary precautions and together we will get through this,” he wrote .
