A British health minister has tested positive for coronavirus, raising fears about the potential spread of the illness through Boris Johnson’s government as Europe tackles the spread of COVID-19.

It came as Turkey announced its first case, and follows the announcement that 168 more people have died in Italy.

Austria has shut its borders to anyone arriving from Italy unless they are certified free of COVID-19.

The move underscores the different approaches taken by EU members to prevent the spread of the disease.


Slovenia later announced that it was closing its border with Italy, which France’s President Emmanuel Macron said was “a bad decision.”

Meanwhile, the Council on Foreign Relations think tank in the US cancelled an event called “Doing Business Under Coronavirus” due to the spread of the infection itself, according to a Bloomberg report.

In other latest coronavirus developments:
