Last week five UK citizens, including a nine-year-old child, were diagnosed with the airborne disease, having stayed at the same lodge in the French Alps. It is thought they contracted Covid 19 from British businessman Steve Walsh, who picked it up at a conference in Singapore.

France has 12 cases of Covid-19, one of which was of a 80-year-old Chinese tourist who died in a Paris hospital. This is the first novel coronavirus death outside of Asia. 4 of the 12 cases have been cured and discharged from the hospitals.
