The Coronavirus Lands In Europe With 3 Cases Confirmed In France 

The death toll from a newly-discovered coronavirus in China has risen to 41 on the day of the Lunar New Year.

Another 15 deaths in the Hubei province, where the outbreak began, were announced on Saturday. Health officials are struggling to contain the outbreak as millions of people travel for the new year festival, one of the most important dates in its calendar.

There are now more than 1,200 confirmed cases in China. The virus has also now spread to Europe, with three cases confirmed in France.

The UK is investigating a number of suspected cases, while officials there are trying to trace around 2,000 people who have recently flown to the UK from Hubei province. {BBC}
