TEGUCIGALPA (Reuters) – Honduran authorities have detected the Central American country’s third case of coronavirus infection, President Juan Orlando Hernandez said on Friday.

Speaking on local television, Hernandez said a 64-year-old man was the latest case. The man’s “epidemiological link” for infection was a relative, Hernandez said, without explaining whether the transmission had occurred inside Honduras.
