The announcement comes amid an outbreak of Wuhan coronavirus in nearby Italy where infections have surged to nearly 300 in a matter of days.

"It has been confirmed that the first patient was infected with the COVID-19 virus," Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic said at a press conference at a hospital in Zagreb.

The patient is a young man "showing mild symptoms", he added.

Health Minister Vili Beros said the man was in Milan between February 19 and 21.

"For now he shows signs of a milder disease and we hope it will remain that way," Beros said.
