First confirmed case linked to new coronavirus outside China

Jan 14, 2020 13:07 IST

Days after the mysterious pneumonia outbreak in the Chinese city of Wuhan was traced to be linked to a new coronavirus by the World Health Organisation, Thailand has reported a confirmed case of the same virus. A Chinese traveller visiting Bangkok was hospitalised with the virus, Thai officials reported. The visitor from Wuhan is receiving treatment at an isolated ward at a state health facility outside Bangkok and is, reportedly, recovering. The coronavirus is linked to the family of virus that caused the deadly Sars and Mers outbreak. Investigations are underway in China to identify the source of the virus.
