The 74-year-old woman was a 'high-risk patient' suffering from chronic disease, Swiss authorities said.
A woman in Switzerland died in a Lausanne hospital after being affected by coronavirus in the canton of Vaud as the country reported 58 infections.

At least 10,000 people have been infected worldwide with 200 dead outside China.
