The outbreak of the coronavirus is still an emergency for China and it is impossible to say where the epidemic will spread, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, director general of the World Health Organization, said on Saturday.
Tedros told the Munich Security Conference in Germany that he was encouraged by measures China had taken to slow the spread of viruses, but was still concerned about the increasing number of cases.
French officials said on Saturday that an elderly Chinese tourist infected with the coronavirus had died in France. He was the first fatality in Europe and the fourth outside mainland China to suffer an epidemic that had shaken the world.
