Coronavirus: France's first known case 'was in December' - BBC News


A patient diagnosed with pneumonia near Paris on 27 December actually had the coronavirus, his doctor has said.

Dr Yves Cohen told French media a swab taken at the time was recently tested, and came back positive for Covid-19.

The patient, who has since fully recovered, said he had no idea where he caught the virus as he had not been to any infected areas.

This news means the virus may have arrived in France almost a month earlier than previously thought.
