    Re: France - 1st confirmed case of nCoV coronavirus travel history from UAE - Roommate and doctor hospitalized

    Two people in France ill after contact with coronavirus victim

    LILLE, France| Thu May 9, 2013 5:15pm EDT

    LILLE, France(Reuters) - Two people who had contact with a Frenchman who is seriously ill with the new SARS-like coronavirus have fallen sick and been admitted to hospital, health officials in northern France said on Thursday.

    One is a patient who shared a ward with the 65-year-old man infected with the virus when he was in a hospital in the town of Valenciennes, northern France, at the end of April, and the other is a doctor who treated him there.

    The 65-year-old carrier, who fell ill on his return from a trip to Dubai, has since been transferred to an isolated intensive care wing in a hospital in Douai, near the northern city of Lille, where he is in a critical condition.

    The ARS local health authority said the two other men were in individual rooms in separate hospitals, one in Lille and the other in the nearby town of Tourcoing, and that tests had been carried out on both of them.

    "They show symptoms which require a special infectious diseases consultation," the ARS said in a statement. "The results of the tests carried out on these two people will be known soon and will be made public."

          Coronavirus suspected cases hospitalized in France

          French health officials said Friday they are investigating three suspected cases of a deadly new respiratory virus related to SARS, in people who had close contact in the hospital with France's only confirmed case.

          Beatrice Degrugillers, a spokeswoman for the regional health agency in France's Nord-Pas-de-Calais region, said a nurse at the hospital where the man was hospitalized in late April has herself been under watch at the hospital in Douai since Thursday night.

          A doctor and a former hospital roommate who had each been in contact with the first patient also remain hospitalized. Test results are expected later Friday.

          If confirmed, the additional cases would heighten concerns about the virus' ability to spread easily between people. Health authorities have previously said the new coronavirus has spread in limited circumstances between people in very close contact, such as relatives taking care of family members.

            By Pauline Fréour - the 10/05/2013

            GRAPHICS - Three people who have been in contact with the French first patient with the new virus similar to SARS may have been infected. The test results should be available Saturday morning.

            Is the new coronavirus nCoV gaining ground in France? The answer should be known Saturday morning.

            Friday, a third suspect was found among those who have been in contact with the first French patient whit near the SARS virus. Regional Health Agency (ARS) of the Nord-Pas-de-Calais announced a nurse at the hospital in Douai, where the patient was between April 29 and May 8, presented with fever and symptoms respiratory justifying examinations. The day before, a doctor and a patient at the hospital in Valenciennes, the first institution that received the patient turned out, were also considered potentially contaminated. ARS will communicate the results of analyzes.

            For now, the only confirmed case is a 65 year old man who stayed in Dubai from April 9 to 17. The first human cases were reported in 2012 in Saudi Arabia, a country bordering the United Arab Emirates. The patient already suffering from a chronic disease, was first hospitalized on April 23 at a hospital in Valenciennes for digestive disorders. He was then transferred on April 29 in the intensive care unit of the hospital in Douai, which appeared respiratory disorders causing its isolation May 2, then at the University Hospital of Lille in the night from Wednesday to Thursday when his condition required extra-corporeal support only the regional center could provide. Placed in an isolation room, he was Friday in a "serious but stable condition," according to the ARS.

            People under surveillance are a physician from Valenciennes hospital , aged 35, the roommate of the patient in this institution, a man in his fifty's, and a nurse from the Douai hospital . These three patients present relatively mild respiratory symptoms and, in the absence of effective treatment, have not received specific drugs. But given the possibility of transmission of the virus between humans, they were placed in solitary confinement - the doctor, to the Infectious Diseases Hospital for medical service Tourcoing and Lille University Hospital for another patient and nurse.

            Followed "hourly"

            The coronavirus is manifested by acute respiratory infection causing fever, cough, shortness of breath and difficulty breathing. Some infected patients also developed acute renal failure and other organ damage pericarditis type indicates the Ministry of Health.

The incubation period is estimated to be ten days, but the information about this virus in the world remain highly fragmented. According to the Institute of Health, human to human transmission of infection is very likely but this mode of contamination was "not important." It is also impossible to say at present whether mortality will remain above 50%, as reveal the 18 deaths in 33 cases currently recorded in the world.
