Coronavirus spreads among close human contacts: WHO

This follows an announcement from France that a man sharing a hospital room with a patient with nCoV had been diagnosed with the same disease.

WHO assistant director-general Keiji Fukuda said the advent of different clusters in multiple countries “increasingly support the hypothesis that when there is close contact, this novel coronavirus can transmit from person to person”.

However, the WHO did not advise any restrictions on travel.
