Coronavirus: France confirms two cases of deadly China virus

France has declared its first confirmed cases of the deadly Wuhan Coronavirus, following a statement from the nation’s heath minister. 

Speaking to French media, Agnes Buzyn said one case of the virus had been confirmed in Bordeaux while the second had been found near Paris. The minister, who said both of the sickened people had travelled to China, added that she expects more cases to emerge within the nation’s borders.

“We have two cases,” she said. “We will probably have other cases.” It comes after a woman who travelled to France from Wuhan was tracked down after claiming she took drugs to mask potential symptoms of a deadly virus at the airport, according to authorities.
