Sri Lanka confirms first case of coronavirus

Jan 29, 2020 11:51 IST

Sri Lanka has confirmed its first case of the deadly coronavirus. The chief epidemiologist of Sri Lanka's health ministry confirmed that the patient is a Chinese woman in her 40s who arrived in Sri Lanka last week as a tourist from China's Hubei province. In China itself, where the outbreak originated, the number has crossed over 4,000. Sri Lanka has suspended visa on arrival for Chinese travellers.
