Among the cases investigated, 13 are immunocompromised; no cases died.
To date, as in other European countries, these cases have occurred mainly, but not exclusively, in men who have sex with men (MSM), with no direct link to people returning from endemic areas. The majority of cases report multiple sexual partners.
Most of the cases investigated declare that they cannot identify the person who allegedly infected them.
Officials also report the first case in a child attending a primary school in Ile-de-France. He was treated medically and shows no signs of seriousness. A probable case has been identified within the same siblings.
