The minister said that the patient was a cancer survivor and had diabetes and high blood pressure when infected. She added that the patient had no history of travel or exposure, meaning they were infected with the community virus.

Officials said two patients died earlier this week who tested positive for KP coronavirus. However, both have traveled in countries affected by the outbreak. Sindh patients who died Friday were the first virus deaths in the region.

185 countries are affected worldwide and the disease has spread rapidly to new areas, killing more than 10,000 people and infecting more than 253,000 people. The focus of the epidemic has now shifted to Europe, especially Italy, where new cases and deaths are increasing rapidly every day.
