An elderly Chinese tourist hospitalised in France has died of the coronavirus, becoming the first fatality in Europe, French Health Minister Agnes Buzyn said Saturday.

France has recorded 11 cases of the virus, out of a global total of 63,851.

The vast majority of those suffering from the virus are in China. The epidemic has killed almost 1,400 people.

The Chinese capital Beijing on Friday imposed a 14-day self-quarantine on people returning to the city from holidays to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus, and threatened to punish those who failed to comply.
