Syria confirms first coronavirus case

The Syrian government on Sunday confirmed its first case of the coronavirus after weeks of rejecting opposition allegations that the disease had already reached the country. Health Minister Nizar al-Yaziji said ’necessary measures’ had been taken regarding the 20-year-old woman, adding she would be quarantined for 14 days. UN officials fear a outbreak in Syria could be particularly catastrophic.
