BREAKING: First Confirmed Case Of Coronavirus In Canada

A 50-year-old man who had travelled to Wuhan and then returned to Canada is being isolated in Toronto.

Authorities have confirmed the first case ‘presumptive’ case of coronavirus in Canada.

According to a Globe & Mail report, a 50-year-old man in Toronto is being held in isolation.

The man had travelled to Wuhan, the Chinese city of 11 million people where the rapidly spreading outbreak began.

The man is said to be in stable condition, at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre in Toronto

The outbreak appears to be increasingly out of control in China, with over 50 million people now quarantined, and the Chinese government banning tourist travel out of the country.

Authorities expect more cases in Canada, and many Canadians are now wondering why flights from China have still not been restricted from entering Canadian airspace.
