Mexican authorities on Friday said they have identified a sixth person infected with coronavirus, a 71 year-old man in the State of Mexico who recently traveled to northern Italy.

Deputy Health Minister Hugo Lopez-Gatell said the man, who suffers from hypertension, arrived in Mexico in “grave condition” and is currently hospitalised in stable condition.

Lopez-Gatell said two of the man’s family members have been tested to check for the infection, with the results still awaited, Reuters reported.
