The Ministry of Health of the Kingdom of Bahrain said on Monday that there were no cases of coronavirus in the kingdom, refuting the allegations which were published in a local newspaper claiming two students who returned from China's Wuhan, had been diagnosed with the virus.

The Bahrain News Agency, BNA, quoted a statement issued by the Ministry as urging the public to seek accurate information from official sources, noting that it is monitoring the developments of the disease.
