Bavaria's health ministry said late yesterday that a man in the town of Starnberg, 30 kilometers southwest of Munich, has been confirmed as suffering from the virus.
The patient is in "good condition" and isolated under medical observation, Bavaria's health ministry said in a statement posted on its website. It did not disclose any details of the patient's age or nationality.
"People who have been in contact (with the patient) have been informed in detail about possible symptoms, hygiene measures and transmission channels," the health ministry said.
The ministry said it considers the risk to the general population in Bavaria to be “low.” Authorities planned to hold a news conference in Munich on Tuesday where they would release further details. ■
