Chile's Health Minister Jaime Manalich said the 33 year old patient had been taken to a hospital in the city of Talca, around 350 kilometers to the south of the capital Santiago.

He had mainly spent time in Singapore and arrived back in Chile on February 25.

The Talca hospital's director, Alfredo Donoso, said the patient only started exhibiting coronavirus symptoms a week after returning to Chile, although those were "quite light."

"He was admitted with a high fever, but then that became normal and he is now totally free of symptoms here in the Talca hospital and is in isolation," said Donoso.

The patient is due to undergo some tests before being allowed to go home.
