Germany confirms human transmission of coronavirus



Limited information is available about potential person-to-person transmission in Germany. A person who had not travelled to China was diagnosed with 2019-nCoV after attending a company training with a colleague from China. The Chinese colleague had recently been visited by family who came from Wuhan. It appears that transmission between the traveler and the German national occurred while the traveler was still asymptomatic.
