Authorities in Italy have not yet identified Patient 0
Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte was forced to admit on Monday that a hospital in the northern town of Codogno had mishandled the region’s first coronavirus case, known as Patient 1.
Conte said that the hospital that treated Patient 1 had not followed protocol. He did not elaborate on what protocols were breached, but admitted that the mishandling “certainly contributed to the spread.”
The UK Department of Health put out a new travel advisory saying British travelers returning from northern Italy — areas north of Pisa, Florence and Rimini — should self-isolate if they display flu-like symptoms.
