The deadly disease hit Europe earlier this month with a major outbreak in Italy. According to authorities, 332 individuals have been infected with coronavirus in the country, while many European states have reported their first cases.

Denmark has announced that a man has been diagnosed with coronavirus after coming back from Italy, Reuters reported, citing authorities.

The new coronavirus, officially named COVID-19, was originally registered in central China at the very end of 2019 and has since spread to over 30 countries, prompting the World Health Organisation (WHO) to declare a global health emergency.
