Three suspected cases of coronavirus have been registered in Ukraine, but two have proven false alarm. The third case is still being examined, Health Minister Zoryana Skaletska has said, according to Interfax-Ukraine.

She noted that the "best Ukrainian specialists" are involved.

Skaletska noted that it takes two to three days for a laboratory to confirm a diagnosis at the regional level, two to three weeks for a reference laboratory in Berlin to confirm the diagnosis.

The outbreak of coronavirus in China's Wuhan has already claimed over 20 lives.
