JOHANNESBURG - Belgian pianist Jean-François Maljean has composed a song to encourage Chinese people to fight and eventually defeat the novel coronavirus.
Maljean said his Chime of the Dawn Bells is a message of support to those working in hospitals battling the virus.
The melody is infused with the sound of chime bells, an important cultural symbol in China's Hubei province.
Meanwhile, Egypt confirms its first coronavirus case, making this the first in Africa.
The virus has infected more than 67,000 people globally.
