G7 countries seeking unified approach to coronavirus - Germany's Spahn

FRANKFURT, Feb 2 (Reuters) - The Group of Seven leading industrialised democracies are seeking a unified procedure to tackle the fast-spreading new coronavirus, German Health Minister Jens Spahn said on Sunday.

A spokesman for the Health Ministry confirmed that Spahn had told reporters that he had spoken to U.S. Health Secretary Alex Azar to look for a joint approach and they had agreed to hold a conference all among G7 countries.

They agreed that isolated approaches were less likely to succeed against the global risks posed by the virus, the spokesman said.

In addition to Germany and the United States, the G7 also includes France, , Japan, Canada and Britain.
