The deadly coronavirus is now spreading between humans in nearly thirty countries across Europe, the World Health Organization has warned.

Fears of the life-threatening infection have now engulfed the continent, which has recorded more than 12,000 cases and 400 deaths.

Europe’s crisis – centred in northern Italy but now rapidly spreading – began with a handful of imported cases from China, where the outbreak began.

But WHO chiefs have now confirmed local transmission – when an infection spreads within a country – in twenty-seven European nations.

France recorded a 70 per cent rise in cases overnight, with more than 1,200 patients now known to have caught the deadly infection.

Germany and Spain also saw huge spikes in the number of infected patients, while the UK’s toll has risen eight-fold in the space of a week.

Albania today became the latest nation to be struck down, meaning only a handful of countries across the continent have yet to record a case.

Europe’s escalating coronavirus crisis comes just weeks before thousands of British families will travel to the continent for Easter.

In other developments, a maintenance worker at Disneyland Paris tested positive for coronavirus, the theme park announced today.
