A deadly outbreak of the new coronavirus emerged in this city of 11 million people last month.

"I don't want to comment on other countries' efforts but at this stage I can say that any suggestion that the outbreak is under control is saying too much", Saijo added.

Identified only as a Washington state man in his 30s, the patient recently returned from Wuhan, China, where an outbreak of pneumonia caused by the virus has taken nine lives (and counting).

The virus, originating in the central Chinese city of Wuhan, has already spread to major cities in China, as well as in the United States, Thailand, South Korea, Japan and Taiwan. The United States has also announced its first case of the virus. There have been no cases in Britain.

On Tuesday, authorities in China confirmed for the first time that human-to-human transmission of the virus had taken place.

The WHO said an animal source appears most likely to be the primary source of this outbreak.

But this brings growing human health risks, said Christian Walzer, executive director of the US-based Wildlife Conservation Society's Health Program.

London is connected to Wuhan - which is home to 11million people - by three direct flights to Heathrow each week.

Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, director-general of the World Health Organization, will hold an emergency meeting Wednesday to determine whether China's outbreaks should be deemed a global health crisis.

Hong Kong had deployed temperature screening machinery at the airport and the high-speed rail station.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention expanded its inspection of airline passengers who had spent time in China to airports in Atlanta and Chicago on Tuesday, building on the 1,200 people who had been screened in California and NY over the weekend. A diagnostic test to detect the virus can cut back on diagnosis time but must take place at a CDC facility - a limitation the agency plans to overcome by sharing tests with domestic and worldwide partners. On the kiosks where people fill in questions, they'll be asked if they've been in an area affected by the outbreak within the last 14 days.

China - which is stepping up containment measures - has still not been able to confirm the exact source of the virus.

Li Bin, vice minister of the commission, told the news conference the recent jump in confirmed cases can be attributed to improved detection methods, accompanied by a deeper understanding of the disease.

And health officials could warn the public through the media, Modie said.

The new coronavirus, which is yet to be named, causes cold-like symptoms including a runny nose, headache, cough, sore throat and a fever.

"If they declare this a matter of worldwide concern, that will impede commerce and could begin to curtail travel in and out of the country", said William Schaffner, professor of medicine in infectious diseases at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine in Nashville, Tennessee. Six more illnesses have been reported in other Asian countries, in addition to the first American case. There is no vaccine for the virus, which can be passed from person to person.

There is now no treatment for new coronavirus and no preventative vaccine, although the National Institutes of Health told NBC News that there is a vaccine being researched in "very preliminary stages".
