World Health Organization officials are concerned about new coronavirus cases confirmed in France and the U.K. that were transmitted without any travel history to China.


Five British citizens contracted the virus in the French Alpine town of Contamines-Montjoie, health authorities said Sunday. On Monday, the U.K. said it confirmed new cases linked to a British man who went a conference in Singapore.

“The detection of this small number of cases could be the spark that becomes a bigger fire, but for now it’s only a spark,” WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told reporters Monday at the organization’s headquarters in Geneva.
