The Yemeni woman, who was quarantined on Thursday for suspicion of coronavirus infection after her arrival from Saudi Arabia, tested negative, private source at the Houthi-run health ministry told Debriefer on Friday.
"PCR analysis for the 37-year woman proves that the war-torn country is still free from COVID-19," according to the source.
Unless official authorities in Sana'a say otherwise with regard to this case, no coronavirus case has been recorded in Yemen until Friday.
On Thursday, Monte Carlo talked in brief on the first COVID-19 case recorded of a Yemeni national arriving from Saudi Arabia.
Based on a tweet by a Houthi official, the report left Yemenis in panic, before the Sana'a-based ministries of health and information denied a story that ousted Saba vice-chairman.
"Unhappy to report the first case in Yemen," the Houthi-run Saba news agency's official tweeted. But he rapidly denied the news blaming his fellow correspondent at health ministry for the wrong information.
"Our reporter at the health ministry misunderstood," Mohamed Abdul Qodus added. "It was a suspected case coming from Saudi Arabia."
According to spokesman for anti-epidemic supreme committee, all previous cases have tested negative, but the woman's was highly suspected as COVID-19 infection.
"The woman and her accompanying family members were quarantined," Abdul Hakim al-Kohlani added.
