Coronavirus, first detected in the Chinese city of Wuhan, has now reached Europe as France confirm two cases. The first is being treated in the southwestern city of Bordeaux while the second has been hospitalised in Paris. French Health Minister Agnes Buzyn said during a press conference these were the first two cases in Europe and added it was likely other cases would arise in the country.
It comes as the United States confirmed a second case of the virus, after a woman in Chicago, Illinois, was found to have contracted it.
The woman in her 60s is being treated in hospital and is understood to be doing well.
She had returned from Wuhan, the epicentre of the outbreak, on January 13 and began experiencing symptoms a few days after arriving home.
