Coronavirus detected in five Britons at French ski resort

Five British nationals on a ski trip have been diagnosed with the new coronavirus at a mountain resort in France, after staying in the same chalet with a person who had been in Singapore, French health officials said on Saturday (February 8).

The group of people newly infected with the virus, who include a child, are not in a serious condition, French Health Minister Agnes Buzyn said.

Two schools near the resort in eastern France’s Savoie will be shut next week as authorities try to determine with whom those infected had been in contact, a regional health official said.

Eleven Britons, including the five who tested positive for the virus, are being examined in local hospitals.

The new cases brought the total number of people infected with the virus in France to 11. The epidemic began in Wuhan in China and the vast majority of cases have been in China.
