As French director of health Jérôme Salomon said, a 16-year-old from Paris succumbed to the consequences of the virus. There is also a death of a young person in Belgium . A girl only 12 years old. "It is a rare incident that affects us all very much," announced the virologist Emmanuel André at a press conference by the health authority in Brussels .
