A thousand guests and workers at a hotel in Tenerife have been quarantined after an Italian doctor and his wife tested positive for coronavirus, and as the first cases of the disease were detected in Austria, Croatia and Switzerland.
The number of confirmed cases of the virus in Spain rose to five on Tuesday afternoon after an Italian woman living in Barcelona tested positive following a recent trip to northern Italy, the location of Europe’s biggest coronavirus outbreak.
Spanish health authorities had already identified two confirmed cases – one on the remote Canary island of La Gomera and another on the Balearic island of Mallorca – but the Catalan case is the first detected in mainland Spain.
Catalonia’s regional government said a 36-year-old Italian woman had been placed in quarantine after visiting Bergamo and Milan earlier this month.
