UK ‘superspreader’ may have passed coronavirus to nearly a dozen people in 3 countries

A British man who contracted the new coronavirus on a business trip spread the virus to 11 other people from three countries, according to news reports.

The man, who is in his 50s, had visited Singapore for a sales conference from Jan. 20 to Jan. 22, according to The Guardian. A little more than 100 people attended the conference, and one participant was from Wuhan, the Chinese city where the outbreak of the new coronavirus, called 2019-nCoV, is thought to have originated. Officials believe the British man became infected with 2019-nCoV at the conference.

Not knowing he had contracted the virus, the man traveled from Singapore to a French ski resort, where he stayed with family from Jan. 24 to Jan. 28, The Guardian reported.
