Germany reports first patient with corona virus

1 min read

The new coronavirus has surfaced in Germany, reports the Bavarian Ministry of Health Monday evening. The patient would have been placed in isolation and would be fine. 4,515 people worldwide have now been infected and 106 people have died.

The man comes from the Starnberg region in the German state. It was only confirmed on Monday evening that he was infected with the corona virus.

Family members of the man are informed about the situation, the symptoms of the virus and hygiene measures that can be taken.

A special working group on infectiology is investigating whether there is a risk to public health in Bavaria. It is not yet known whether the patient contracted the virus in Europe or China. Perhaps, just like in France, it is about someone who came to Europe from Wuhan, for example.

Germany is the second European country in which an infection with the new corona virus has been established. France preceded the country last week, when three people were found to have the disease. Two of them are in Paris, one is in Bordeaux.
