Cameroon confirms first 2 coronavirus cases

Cameroon said Friday it has confirmed its first two cases of the novel coronavirus, a French national who arrived in the capital Yaounde in February and a Cameroonian who came in contact with him.

Cameroon is the first central African country to register a case of the deadly virus, and one of five sub-Saharan nations.

The country’s health ministry released a statement on Friday announcing the 58-year-old French man had tested positive.
