KIEV (Reuters) - Ukraine has recorded its first coronavirus death and foreign nationals will be barred from entering the country for two weeks to contain the spread of the illness, officials said at a televised briefing on Friday.

A 71-year-old woman in the Zhytomyr region died, having recently returned from Poland. Ukraine has two other confirmed cases of the virus.
