Coronavirus kills 65-year-old Frenchman

A new strain of coronavirus claims another life....this time in France. A 65-year-old man who had been travelling in Dubai has died from the illness, the French health ministry said. He was the first Frenchman to fall ill from the SARS-like coronavirus. The World Health Organisation says the virus, which causes coughing, fever and pneumonia, can likely be passed between humans, but only after prolonged, close contact. Out of 44 confirmed cases worldwide, 23 people have now died with most of those infected having travelled in the Middle East. A virus from the same family triggered the SARS outbreak in Asia that killed 775 people in 2003.
