First Coronavirus Death Confirmed In Europe

A Chinese tourist has died in France after contracting the new coronavirus – the first fatality from the disease outside Asia.

The victim was an 80-year-old man from China’s Hubei province, according to French Health Minister Agnès Buzyn.

He arrived in France on 16 January and was placed in quarantine in hospital in Paris on 25 January, she said.

Only three deaths had previously been reported outside mainland China – in Hong Kong, the Philippines and Japan.

He told the BBC he heard about possible discrimination some medics were facing and wanted to start a movement to counteract that, using the hashtag #braveheartsg.

“I have read about Singaporeans getting out of lifts or getting off trains if there was a person in medical scrubs because of fear and paranoia that they might get coronavirus.

“So for me this was about tackling people’s anxiety.

The hashtag, which has been used more than 5,000 times since Saturday, has even been mentioned by Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong on his Facebook page.

“Let us all do our part to help and encourage one another. Together, we will overcome this trying time and emerge stronger,” he posted.

Memories of the 2003 Sars crisis, which saw hundreds of infections and scores of deaths, still loom large in the tiny city-state.

Though the Covid-19 outbreak appears less severe, the Singapore government has strenuously sought to manage public anxiety by encouraging Singaporeans to pull together.

But these efforts have not always worked – with many Singaporeans panic-buying supplies at supermarkets last week when the country raised its alert level.

Still, there are others are keen to do their part.

More than 800 notes have been sent to the StandUpForSG Facebook group so far, and Wally says they hope they can print as many as possible to distribute at healthcare facilities starting on Valentine’s Day.

“I came up with #braveheartsg as the hashtag because we need to have brave hearts.

“We need courage, we need to be brave, and right now who else is doing that but the healthcare workers,” he said

However, more than 1,500 people have died from the virus within China, mostly in Hubei where it first emerged.

A further 2,641 people have been newly confirmed as infected, bringing the China’s total to 66,492.

France has previously said it has 11 confirmed cases of coronavirus, officially called Covid-19, and six remain in hospital.

The deceased man’s daughter has also been infected, Ms Buzyn said, but she is believed to be recovering.

Outside mainland China, there have been more than 500 cases in 24 countries.
