Switzerland, Austria, Croatia and mainland Spain have become the latest countries to declare their first cases of the coronavirus as it tightens its grip on Europe.

Three new cases – two in Austria and one in Croatia – are young people who have travelled to northern Italy, which has been ravaged by the escalating outbreak.

Officials have yet to confirm if the other two cases – one in Switzerland and one in Catalonia – were infected in Italy, Asia or elsewhere.

Italy has seen a dramatic surge in cases since Friday, with the number of infections soaring from just six to 283. Seven people have died there.

More than 80,000 people across the world have been infected, while at least 2,700 are known to have died from the pneumonia-causing virus.

Switzerland’s Federal Office of Public Health confirmed its first case of coronavirus this afternoon.

Further details will be provided this evening, the health department said. It declined to say where the first case had been detected.

Swiss television RTS said authorities in Ticino, on the border to Italy, had confirmed the case occurred in their region.

Spain today confirmed its fourth case of coronavirus in Catalonia – a German man on the island of La Gomera was the country’s first case on January 31.

A British holidaymaker in Mallorca was the second case. The third was announced yesterday – an Italian doctor on holiday in Tenerife.
