A Brazilian government test has confirmed the first case of a fast-spreading new coronavirus in Latin America, a source said on Wednesday, after a Sao Paulo hospital flagged the possible infection of a 61-year-old who had visited Italy, APA reports citing Reuters.

The person familiar with the matter spoke on the condition of anonymity because Brazil’s government had not yet announced the test results, ahead of a planned news conference.
