Tunisia has confirmed the first fatal case of coronavirus, a 72-year-old woman who died on Thursday night in hospital after being transferred from her home in the eastern resort city of Sousse.

The health ministry in a statement said she had travelled back to the country from Turkey four days ago and was suffering from other unspecified chronic illnesses.

It said the elderly woman was in self-isolation at her home, but her poor health necessitated her transfer to hospital where positive laboratory tests were confirmed.

She died on the same day that Tunisia’s first registered Covid-19 patient was discharged from hospital with a clean bill of health. The country recorded its first coronavirus case 18 days ago, and now has 39 confirmed cases.
