    CAIRO — A 60-year-old German tourist died in a Red Sea hospital after being infected with the coronavirus, Egypt’s Health Ministry said in a statement. The tourist’s death is the country’s first related to the virus.

    The tourist had been in Egypt for seven days, the Health Ministry said. He traveled Friday from Luxor in southern Egypt to Hurghada along the country’s Red Sea coast where he experienced symptoms. He tested positive at a hospital and was placed in intensive care after refusing to be quarantined at another medical facility, the Health Ministry said. His condition deteriorated Sunday, authorities said.

    His death came a day after Health Ministry officials announced 33 new cases of the virus on a Nile cruise ship that traveled from Aswan and docked in Luxor Friday. The 19 infected passengers on the ship included Americans and 14
