Two new cases of coronavirus have been confirmed in France, announced Tuesday, February 25, Jerome Salomon, the director-general of Health, while specifying that the state of health of these people does not cause any concern.
This is a woman who returned from China on February 7, hospitalized in Paris for “surveillance” and who “is doing very well”, and a French man who returns from Lombardy, Italy, and is now in a hospital in the Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes region.
The young woman was tested negative for the new coronavirus but was a carrier of “traces of healing”, said Jerome Salomon.
This brings to 14 the number of confirmed cases in France since the start of the epidemic, including one death, that of an elderly Chinese tourist in mid-February in Paris.
The French “invited” to postpone their trip to the contaminated areas of Italy
The Secretary of State for Transport, Jean-Baptiste Djebbari, also invited the French to postpone as far as possible their trips to the regions of Italy most affected by the coronavirus epidemic.
“Those who actually planned to go to the most affected areas and who can (…) postpone their trip are obviously invited to do so,” he explained on Franceinfo radio.
