China approved the start of clinical trials on a recombinant vaccine for the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19), which was developed by China's Academy of Military Medical Sciences in Wuhan City of central China's Hubei province on Monday.

Chen Wei is the leader of the research team and also an academician with the Chinese Academy of Engineering.

China's National Medical Products Administration approved the start of clinical trials on the COVID-19 vaccine after a review meeting on Tuesday afternoon.

Since arriving in Wuhan on Jan. 26, Chen's team has been racing against time in cooperation with local enterprises to develop a recombinant novel coronavirus vaccine. They carried out relevant researches on safety pharmacology, pharmacodynamics, general toxicology and others, on the basis of their prior success in developing an Ebola vaccine.

The team has rapidly completed various tasks including the design of the COVID-19 vaccine. Then, the safety and effectiveness evaluation of the vaccine was completed and its quality had been reconfirmed.

"In accordance with international standards and domestic laws and regulations, we have made preliminary preparations for its safety, effectiveness, controllable quality and mass production. We have made all preparations to start the formal clinical trial at any given time," said Chen.

Chen and her team will focus on the following clinical trials after the approval.

"We are now in a global village. We are a community of shared future for mankind, and vaccine is one of the most powerful scientific and technological weapons to end the novel coronavirus epidemic," said Chen.

Germany Virus Patient

On the fifth day after falling ill with the new COVID-19 respiratory disease, Karoline Preisler could finally breathe again without severe lung pain.

But the 48-year-old was still very weak and ill, had slept only three hours at the isolation ward of a hospital in northeastern Germany and worried about her husband and children.

Preisler, a legal practitioner and local politician with the pro-business Free Democrats party from the small town of Barth on the Baltic Sea, fell ill on Wednesday night, a few hours after she was tested positive.

Her husband Hagen Reinhold, a federal lawmaker with the Free Democrats, also tested positive and was put under isolation in Berlin.

Their nine-year-old twins and their 11-year-old tested negative but had been ordered by the health authorities to stay home in Barth in self-isolation with their mother.

Reinhold was allowed to return to take care of the children in Barth before Preisler was admitted to the hospital Saturday morning.

Isolated and sick, Preisler turned to the internet for first-hand information but was unable to find much online from other patients sharing their experiences with COVID-19, so she decided to get things started.

Under the hashtag #coronatagebuch, or #coronadiary, Preisler began tweeting frequent updates to her more-than 5,000 followers about life with COVID-19.

She has posted hollow-eyed pictures of herself with mouth protection, uploaded photos of cleaning staff in full protective gear taking out contaminated clothes from her hospital room and a selfie of her receiving oxygen through thin tubes in her nose.

She frequently, and intimately, updates her readers about how she is dealing with the virus, sometimes well, sometimes not so well, as millions around the globe worry, but still know so little about how COVID-19 can play out on a personal level.

With new infections dwindling in Asia, Europe has become the main front line of the fight against COVID-19.

As of Tuesday, March 17, the virus had infected more than 182,000 worldwide and killed more than 7,150, though more than 79,000 people have already recovered.

In Germany, a country of 83 million, Preisler is one of some 7,300 people who have been tested positive, according to a count kept by Johns Hopkins University.

China, Italy, Iran, South Korea and Spain have the most infections.

For most people, the coronavirus causes only mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough.

For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia.  

Preisler has not been diagnosed with pneumonia, but due to a health precondition, the illness affected her worse than most people her age.

On Thursday, when Preisler already suffered from shortness of breath, she and her kids marked off areas of their home with tape, turning parts of it into a makeshift isolation ward for mom, while leaving the rest of the house to the healthy kids.

Preisler was too sick to cook, so the children took over the kitchen, making waffles topped with lots of powdered sugar and browsing through cookbooks to come up with other recipes.

Friends went grocery shopping and dropped the food in front of the family's home, since none of them were allowed to get in due to the quarantine.  

On Twitter, Preisler updated her followers with a grim sense of humor about the latest developments.

"Dear corona diary, here's a positive approach ... somebody who cannot breathe well saves food. It's too exhausting (to eat). My fitness tracker is proud of my weight loss. Welcome hip bones, that I could live to see you again," Preisler wrote on the second day of her illness.

Despite trying to cheer up her followers with cheeky tweets, Preisler progressively started feeling worse.

She couldn't go to the hospital though, because she couldn't leave her quarantined children alone.

It was only on Friday night that her husband, who was showing only mild symptoms, got permission from health authorities to drive home by car from Berlin in full protection gear without stopping once for gas so he could join her and the kids again.

The next morning, Preisler was admitted to the Krankenhaus am Sund hospital in the city of Stralsund.

She started getting oxygen and inhaled medications that have improved her shortness of breath, but it is not clear yet, when the doctors will release her.

Preisler said she received positive and encouraging responses to her German-language social media postings from all over Germany and Europe and from as far away as Winnipeg, Canada.

"At some point this isolation will end and then many people around me will be sick and I will not be able to get infected anymore, but I will be able to give help. I am currently experiencing a lot of help myself and I am looking forward to the moment when I can give it back because we are at the beginning of a pandemic, it will get worse and then I will be there to help" said Preisler.

For most people, the new coronavirus causes only mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough.

For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia.

The vast majority of people recover from the new virus.

According to the World Health Organization, people with mild illness recover in about two weeks, while those with more severe illness may take three to six weeks to recover.

Italy Virus Hospital

A senior doctor on the frontline of the fight against the new coronavirus is urging colleagues and authorities outside of Italy to create new intensive care capacity as soon as they can in order to preempt the spread of the pandemic.

Professor Sergio Cattaneo, Director of Anaesthesiology and intensive therapy at "Spedali Civili di Brescia" said the move would be the best way for others to learn from Italy's experience with the spread of the disease.

Cattaneo was speaking during an exclusive interview with the Associated Press at the hospital in one of Italy's worst hit provinces.

He said Italy has ben forced to "chase after" the epidemic day after day, which put the healthcare system under unprecedented stress.

After the initial shock, in Lombardy extensive efforts have been focused on creating more intensive care capacity, partly by shutting down operating theatres to direct resources to where they're most needed.

"If the spreading of this epidemic is not put under control, it will bring all hospitals to their knees" even in countries and regions with excellent healthcare systems, he said.

Lombardy can count on one of Europe's best healthcare systems. With 750 to 800 intensive therapy beds for a population of 10 million people, it normally exceeds its needs and is able to help other regions in that regard.

But even in Lombardy, Cattaneo said, he and his colleagues were shocked at how quickly the epidemic has spread so far.

In a matter of two to three weeks, they had to admit a total 1,200 patients to intensive care. Over 850 were still receiving intensive care at the time of the interview. The healthcare is barely able to cope thanks to the expansion of capacity, which is still ongoing at full steam.

Cattaneo emphasised health professionals are dealing with a new disease, and so far there is no therapy for it.

Antiviral drugs are being tested, and off-label drugs used on selected patients to treat the most serious consequences of the disease, but "We can't say these drugs work" as scientific evidence about their efficacy is still missing.

Hence, the need to contain the spread of the virus.

At outdoor emergency structures built on the hospital ground to test and screen potential new COVID-19 cases, personnel work shifts of up to 18 hours.

And an increase in patiens arriving with already serious symptoms has been registered over the past few days.

Even with the heroic efforts of its doctors, Lombardy continues to count its dead, with a local paper featuring ten pages of obituaries on Sunday.

Still, the heartwarming, encouraging feedback Cattaneo and his staff receive on a daily basis by local residents fuels their spirits.

And these doctors definitely understand the human side of this emergency.

A member of Cattaneo's team, Doctor Luigi Filippini uses tablets to connect patients in intensive care - including those who are intubated and even those in a coma - to their loved ones via video conference.

Cattaneo praises the initiative, saying this is crucial for the wellbeing of the relatives and patients alike.

The whole experience "will make us much stronger" Cattaneo says.

Italy is the hardest-hit European country with nearly 28,000 cases and 2,158 deaths from COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus.

For most people, the new coronavirus causes only mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough. For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia.

The vast majority of people recover from the new virus. According to the World Health Organization, people with mild illness recover in about two weeks, while those with more severe illness may take three to six weeks to recover.

Worldwide, more than 179,000 people have been infected and more than 7,000 have died. Over 78,000 have recovered, most of them in China.

What we're doing here and is saving us has been to close down operating theatres, to reduce surgeries in order to direct both human and material resources to intensive therapy."

Ambulances in Italy's capital were busy transporting patients to a new hospital specifically equipped to tackle the new coronavirus on Tuesday morning.

Footage shows patients, some with faces blurred in accordance with Italy's laws to protect their identity, being brought in to the new facility by paramedics clad in protective suits, masks and gloves.

The new clinic opened on Monday and is quickly filling its beds with patients coming from the nearby Agostino Gemelli University Policlinic and from the Rome area.

At the Agostino Gemelli University Policlinic, 21 new ICU units and 32 new beds for infective diseases were opened on Monday morning, as part of the new Columbus Covid 2 Hospital, an area fully dedicated to the COVID-19 cases in order to support the regional health authorities in containing the pandemic.

Within 10 days the Columbus Covid 2 Hospital will be completed with 74 new beds and 59 ICU units: 20 doctors, 65 nurses and 22 social-health operator will be working for hospitalizations of Covid patients, while 48 anaesthetists and 180 nurses will be committed to the ICU units.

The new hospital was created in a building previously dedicated to orthopaedic wards and quickly turned into an infective disease unit.

The Columbus Covid 2 Hospital belongs to the Gemelli, the biggest private hospital integrated in the free public health care system in Italy.

In 2005 Pope John Paul II was hospitalized at Gemelli, which is also an important medicine university and a medical research center.

The main Coronavirus hub in Rome is currently the infective disease hospital Spallanzani.

Italy reported another jump in infections Monday, up more than 3,000 to 27,980.

With 2,158 deaths, including 349 more in just the last 24 hours, Italy now accounts for well over a quarter of the global death toll.

Cases, however, slowed in Lombardy, the hardest-hit region.

The coronavirus pandemic has infected more than 181,000 people and killed more than 7,000 worldwide.

For most people, the new coronavirus causes only mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough.

For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia.

The vast majority of people recover from the new virus. According to the World Health Organization, people with mild illness recover in about two weeks, while those with more severe illness may take three to six weeks to recover.

Shoppers queued outside supermarkets in Paris on Tuesday as France imposed restrictions to curb the spread of the new coronavirus.

France and the United Kingdom followed other European countries in deciding to limit people's movements outside home as the European Union considered closing its external borders to foreign travelers Monday.

French President Emmanuel Macron said that starting on Tuesday, people will only be allowed to leave their homes in France for necessary activities such as shopping for food or taking a walk.

The restrictions put France much closer to a full lockdown of the population, unprecedented actions taken in Italy and Spain in response to the virus pandemic.

Macron said gatherings with family and friends would be prohibited and workers should only commute to their jobs if working from home isn't feasible.

France now has more than 6,600 cases of the virus, including 148 deaths.

Police officers wearing masks could be seen stopping cars and enforcing checks.

Lorries carrying produce and supplies are still permitted to enter the country.

A nationwide lockdown is also in place, confining citizens to their homes except for urgent business like buying food or heading to any hospital that might still have the capacity to treat them.

Spain is now the fourth-most infected country in the world, with cases numbering 9,191 and 309 fatalities, according to the Spanish Health Ministry.

A Nara deer is fed by a locals in Japan after the creatures have been forced to venture out of the parks where they live in search of food due to the coronavirus. The animals are normally fed by tourists but visitor numbers have plunged due to the spread of the Covid-19 coronavirus in recent months. They are now venturing into the city's streets, subways and car parks as they search for food. Footage from Sunday (March 15) shows a hungry deer devouring crackers. News reports also show distressed deer wandering the streets of the city while concerned drivers slow down and try to avoid hitting them. One resident said: ''On the morning of 2 March, for the first time in my 30 years of living here, there are deer at Nara Station, two kilometers away from Nara Park. There are no tourists to feed them rice crackers so they’ve ventured far away for breakfast. Please come to Nara and feed rice crackers to the deer.'' The pandemic has had a devastating effect on animals that rely on tourists to be fed. In Lopburi, Thailand, last week hundreds of hungry monkeys were seen viciously fighting over scraps of food. There have been at least 182,605 confirmed coronavirus cases worldwide and 7,171 deaths as of March 17, with 833 cases in Japan and 28 deaths. (ends)

Puerto Rico closed all of its beaches on Monday and cleared hundreds of tourists from the coast in a crackdown on people violating a newly imposed curfew aimed at curbing the spread of coronavirus.

Earlier this week, a curfew was put into effect, but many tourists in the capital San Juan ignored orders to stay inside their hotel rooms.

The National Guard will begin screening all passengers at the island's main airport. Shops, malls, bars and restaurants are either closed or offering a reduced service.

Many Puerto Rico residents have expressed fear over the virus.

The island has registered 5 confirmed cases, and the government is seeking to avert a public health crisis.

For most people, the virus causes only mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough. For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia, and death.

The vast majority of people recover. According to the World Health Organization, people with mild illness recover in about two weeks, while those with more severe illness may take three to six weeks to recover.

The Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC) reported 144 more cases of the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and increased the death toll to 10 in South Korea on Tuesday at 16:00 local time.

The government, presidential Blue House officials and the ruling Democratic Party held a meeting on Tuesday, deciding to designate Daegu City and North Gyeongsang Province as regions under special control to further strengthen its epidemic control network and block the spread of the epidemic among communities.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in visited the country's southeastern city of Daegu and held a meeting on prevention and control of the epidemic there.

He thanked all the medical workers and personnel on the frontlines of the epidemic prevention and control and stressed that the South Korean people will defeat the epidemic by staying united.

Daenam Hospital in Cheongdo of North Gyeongsang Province where large-scale infections first broke out, has more than 110 confirmed cases and five deaths as of Monday. So far, 10 out of the 14 critically ill patients reported in the country are in Daenam Hospital.

Two universities in the region have also reported confirmed cases.

Some students at Kyungpook National University and Youngnam University of North Gyeongsang Province were confirmed to have been infected with the disease and the two universities have closed relevant dormitory buildings.

The universities in North Gyeongsang Province have all sent messages to students who have not returned to school, asking them to stay at home for a week due to safety concerns.

The number of infected patients in South Korea now totals 977. The KCDC updates the data twice a day at 10:00 and 17:00 local time.

Government officials in Pakistan quarantined around 100 pilgrims returning from virus-affected Iran on Tuesday as the border between the two countries remained closed.

Pakistan closed its key border crossing with Iran at the town of Taftan in the southwestern Balochistan province on Saturday.

Since then, no one has been allowed to pass through, with trade activity also suspended for the straight third day.

Iranian driver Kareem Dad said he had been waiting at the border for three days, with no food or water, and it had been a "difficult situation".

Pakistani authorities said the approximately 100 mostly minority Shiite pilgrims who returned home at Taftan before the closure of the border were being quarantined for two weeks to assess their health condition.

They were isolated at a government building by local authorities after returning from Tehran where they had gone to visit holy places.

Currently, more than 7,000 Pakistani pilgrims are in Iran where authorities will issue a medical certificate before allowing them to return home.

Balochistan province Minority Minister Danesh Kumar said a further quarantine would take place even with a certificate.

"When pilgrims come to our side we will also quarantine them and after that allow them to go to their towns," he said.

Iran announced on Tuesday a rise to 95 confirmed cases in the country with 15 deaths.

Pakistan currently has no confirmed cases.

Medical workers' sacrifices and efforts in fighting the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) are paying off as more and more confirmed patients were cured and discharged from hospitals on Monday across China.

As the last two COVID-19 patients were discharged from hospital, Qingyuan City of Guangdong Province became the first city in the province that saw all patients cured.

The two discharged patients are a grandmother and her granddaughter, 63 and 2 years old, respectively, who are the oldest and the youngest infected with the disease in the city.

A family member of the two patients said they are very grateful to the medical workers of the Qingyuan People's Hospital.

Although all infected cases were cured in Qingyuan, the medical workers there still do not dare to relax but remain on the alert instead.

"Tonight we will continue to keep an eye and see if there are other places which need our assistance, and we're also prepared to receive more patients," said Zhong Bei, director of the infectious medicine department of the Qingyuan People's Hospital.

With 12 cured patients discharged from hospital in Shenzhen City of south China's Guangdong Province on Monday, the city has seen cured COVID-19 patients discharged for 22 consecutive days.

A total of 249 patients have been released from hospital in Shenzhen, with 165 still under treatment.

In Wuhan City of central China's Hubei Province, another five patients recovered from the COVID-19 and were discharged from the temporary hospital at the Wuhan Sports Center on Monday after being treated by the medical teams from southwest China's Guizhou Province.

The five cured patients, aged from 20 to 58, showed their gratitude to the medical workers by singing to them.

"We thank all the medical workers, not only for their good medical treatment, but also for psychological comfort to us. We have all been taken good care of here," said a cured patient.

"What touched me most was that they stayed with us day and night. They are really exhausted. When we were eating, they couldn't eat and drink at all," said another cured patient.

The medical workers from Guizhou also presented the cured patients fruits and wrote letters to inspire them.

In addition to the patients infected with the COVID-19, a baby, who had been born by a mother contracting the disease, was also discharged from hospital in Hangzhou City of east China's Zhejiang Province.

The baby was born on Feb 8 and then received medical observation after his birth for 16 days. The doctors on Monday confirmed that he was not infected with COVID-19.

Japan confirmed ten new cases of novel coronavirus infection on Monday, driving the number of infected patients up to 850.

Of the ten infected, four were in Hokkaido and one of them a teacher. Thus the local authorities decided to suspend classes of the school where the teacher works from Tuesday to March 6.

The total confirmed cases in Tokyo Prefecture reached 32, including three newly confirmed cases on Monday.

The Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare confirmed on Monday that a staff member of the Ministry and a quarantine officer who worked at the cruise ship got infected.

So far, six civil servants, two quarantine officers, three staff members of the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare and a staffer of the Cabinet Secretariat, who worked on Diamond Princess cruise ship have been infected with the disease.

Japanese experts on Monday issued a statement saying the coming one to two weeks will be a critical time for the disease to spread rapidly or subside.

The statement also says confirmed cases without identified infection sources have emerged in several places, implying that the epidemic may speed up spreading and asks the people to avoid gathering.

The number of patients infected with novel coronavirus pneumonia (COVID-19) as of 16:00 on Monday in South Korea rose to a total of 833, up 231 from the previous day, and the death toll rose to eight, according to authorities.

The United States Forces Korea (USFK) also reported on Monday that a USFK widowed dependent living in Daegu, about 300 kilometers southeast of the capital Seoul, tested positive for COVID-19. This is the first USFK-related individual to test positive for the virus.

Of the total patients, 681 were residents in Daegu and its surrounding North Gyeongsang Province.

As of 9:00 on Monday, about half of the confirmed cases are being linked to religious gatherings of a minor religious group, called Shincheonji Church of Jesus, in Daegu.

Many of these church-related cases are being traced back to a single person, who is now dubbed "Patient 31" or "super-spreader".

Patient 31 is a 61-year-old woman who is a member of the religious group and began to show symptoms of the disease earlier this month. Reports said she attended church ceremonies in the city on four separate occasions -- twice before she showed symptoms and twice afterwards. About 1,000 church-goers attended the same church services.

According to reports, she refused to be tested for COVID-19 twice, but finally tested positive last Tuesday. Two days later, the country saw a huge uptick in confirmed cases and the majority of these patients attended the same church as Patient 31.

A staggering 50 people have died in the Iranian city of Qom from the new coronavirus this month, a lawmaker was quoted as saying on Monday, even as the Health Ministry insisted only 12 deaths have been recorded to date in the country.

The new death toll reported by the Qom representative, Ahmad Amirabadi Farahani, is significantly higher than the latest number of nationwide confirmed cases of infections that Iranian officials had reported just a few hours earlier, which stood at 12 deaths out of 47 cases, according to state TV.

Iran's Health Ministry spokesman Iraj Harirchi rejected the Qom lawmaker’s claims, insisting the death toll from the virus remains at 12.

However, he raised the number of confirmed cases from the virus to 61.

Some 900 other suspected cases are being tested, he said.

"No one is qualified to discuss this sort of news at all,” Haririchi said, adding that lawmakers have no access to coronavirus statistics and could be mixing figures on deaths related to other diseases like the flu with the new virus, which first emerged in China in December.

Still, the number of deaths compared to the number of confirmed infections from the virus is higher in Iran than in any other country, including China and South Korea, where the outbreak is far more widespread.

Farahani, the lawmaker from Qom, was quoted in local media saying more than 250 people are quarantined in the city, which is a popular place of religious study for Shiites from across Iran and other countries.

He spoke following a session in parliament in Tehran on Monday, and was quoted by ILNA and other semi-official news agencies.

The lawmaker said the 50 deaths date as far back as February 13.

Iran first officially reported cases of the virus and its first deaths in Qom on February 19.

++The Associated Press is adhering to Iranian law that stipulates all media are banned from providing BBC Persian, VOA Persian, Manoto TV and Iran International any coverage from Iran, and under this law if any media violate this ban the Iranian authorities can immediately shut down that organization in Tehran.++

"The Americans have said the sanctions are not aimed at stopping the medicines going to the country, but in fact, because there is no banking ties with other countries, in other parts of the world, Iranians have been unable to, let's say, import those pharmaceutical commodities and products."

Iran reported the eighth death from COVID-19 and 15 new cases infected with the coronavirus on Sunday, bringing the total number to 43.

It has sparked public fears in the country. In some drug stores, products for curbing the spread of coronavirus have already sold out.

"All the sanitizers are sold out and we suffer from the lack of supply because Dermoset, which is an Iranian brand that supplies these things, has not distributed any product for two weeks," said Mojdeh, a pharmacist in Tehran.

Iran's foreign ministry has confirmed the spread of COVID-19 to several cities since the outbreak was first reported Wednesday in Qom, about 120 kilometers south of the capital.

Despite the official figures, there is still widespread skepticism about the number of new infections being announced.

"I got higher numbers from my family and friends who work in healthcare centers in Tehran than the statistics that local news declared," said Sara.

It's a concern echoed on the streets, where vendors sell masks for ten times the normal price.

"It is better that they inform people correctly. I think we have lots of rumors about this case and this leads to chaos. I think that we won't face any problem if we care about our hygiene," said Mehdi, a resident.

The government is trying to mount a major response.

The dire state of Iran's healthcare sector will not make it easy. And that's not the only obstacle.

The challenge of containing the virus is likely to be much greater for Iran because of the crippling sanctions re-imposed after the U.S. backed out of the nuclear deal in 2018.

Healthcare is theoretically exempt from sanctions, though financial dealings with Iran are banned.

"The Americans have said the sanctions are not aimed at stopping the medicines going to the country, but in fact, because there is no banking ties with other countries, in other parts of the world, Iranians have been unable to, let's say, import those pharmaceutical commodities and products," said Abas Aslani, senior research fellow of Center for Middle East Strategic Studies.

The government announced schools would be closed from Sunday in two cities, including Qom, where the outbreak started.

Taking no chances, the Air Kuwait and Iraqi Airways have suspended all flights in and out of Iran while Iraq has also implemented screening measures for the few remaining flights and a temporary ban on border crossings by land.

The first batch of wards are being installed at the new Huoshenshan Hospital in Wuhan, which is devoted to treating the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) pneumonia patients.

Located near the Wuhan Workers' Sanatorium in the Caidian District in the western suburbs, the Huoshenshan Hospital is designed to have 1,000 beds for providing isolated and efficient treatment of the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) pneumonia patients.

The hospital is scheduled to be put into use by Feb. 3.

German authorities on Tuesday said the country's first patient of a deadly new virus likely contracted it from a Chinese national who recently travelled from the nation.

In a news conference in the Bavarian capital Munich, a health and food safety official said that the 33-year-old man from the nearby town of Starnberg was being isolated and medically monitoried for the coronavirus.

The patient had attended a work meeting in the Starnberg district on January 21 and a Chinese woman, working for the same company, was also there, according to Bavarian Health Minister Melanie Huml.

The woman, who hadn't previously shown any symptoms, then flew home on Thursday and went to a doctor after feeling ill on her flight.

Officials added that before the woman travelled to Germany, she had seen her parents, who come from Hubei province, the region where the new virus originated from.

Health Minister Huml said that the risk of the infection to the general population in Bavaria was "low."

She also said that the government was considering "whether it might be useful" to implement medical scanning equipment at airports amid the virus outbreak.

Germany is the second European country to report a confirmed case of the virus.

Authorities in France confirmed three cases in recent days - all Chinese citizens who recently returned from travels there.

The viral disease has killed at least 106 people in China.

Munich - 28 January 2020

2. SOUNDBITE (German) Melanie Huml, Bavarian Health Minister:

"And when you look at the current case, the patient is doing well. However, he is still isolated at the Schwabing Clinic in Munich, where he is under medical supervision. The contact person's investigation is running at full speed. Particularly in the family environment and in the company's surroundings, who have already been informed. Further measures will be to set up a hotline, where concerned citizens can also turn to in case of questions. This will be done today."

3. Cutaway of news conference

"We are also discussing further measures with the federal government, for example whether it might be useful to measure fever at airports as well. But there is no final decision yet."

6. SOUNDBITE (German) Andreas Zapf, Head of Bavarian State Office for Health and Food Safety (LGL):

"It is about a 33-year-old man, employee of a company in the Starnberg district, who attended a meeting last Tuesday, January 21, here in the Starnberg district. The trainer, or at least someone who also attended the meeting, but more likely in a leadership role from what we have heard - was a Chinese woman. This company also has branches in China."

7. Cutaway of news conference

8. SOUNDBITE (German) Andreas Zapf, Head of Bavarian State Office for Health and Food Safety (LGL):

9. Cutaway of news conference

10. SOUNDBITE (German) Andreas Zapf, Head of Bavarian State Office for Health and Food Safety (LGL):

"According to the current state of knowledge 1030 (0930 GMT), we have not been able to find anyone who has any other symptoms. But it cannot be ruled out that someone of these contact persons is also ill. But now 1030 (0930 GMT) knowledge level we have not found any yet, but we are intensively working on it."
