New French health minister: "Credible risk" of coronavirus pandemic

PARIS, Feb 18 (Reuters) - New French health minister Olivier Veran said on Tuesday there is a "credible risk" the coronavirus outbreak could turn unto a pandemic.

"This is both a working assumption and a credible risk," Veran told France Info radio, when asked about the possibility of the coronavirus becoming a pandemic.

He said France was ready to deal with all the possibilities and its health system was sufficiently robust and well-equipped. (Reporting by Dominique Vidalon and Sudip Kar-Gupta; Editing by Andrew Heavens)
