The health authorities in the Democratic Republic of Congo have confirmed that a second person has tested positive for the new coronavirus and is being treated in hospital.
The patient is a 46-year-old Cameroonian national who lives in DR Congo with his family.
He returned to the country from France on 8 March and did not show symptoms of the virus.
DR Congo’s health authorities say they have so far identified 117 people who have come into contact with both of the country’s confirmed cases.
The news comes a day after doctors in DR Congo decided to return to work, ending a two-month strike.
Correspondents say the medical union signed an agreement with the government to improve their working conditions and pay.
