The woman, who came from the city of Wuhan, in the Hubei province, China  where the virus originated, reportedly bragged about having a fever before arriving in France. She was able to get past the medical screening by drinking antipyretic medicine to lower her temperature.

She also left Wuhan before officials raised a travel ban on the city.
