Patients in Australia being tested 'every day' for deadly coronavirus

Didier Houssin, who chaired the World Health Organization emergency committee on the virus, said only a limited number of cases have been reported outside China, and that Chinese authorities are taking preventive measures such as a lockdown of Wuhan.

'All our Global Positioning System and hospitals across the country have had a letter from the Chief Medical Officer and the medical director at NHS England and us at Public Health England, so that if somebody does present and they are anxious, if they do meet our criteria, that they will be put somewhere where they won't infect other people while they're assessed and while we can get them tested'.

Dr. Stephen Hoption Cann, an epidemiologist at the school of population and public health at the University of British Columbia, said masks can provide some protection from droplets when someone sneezes or coughs and the requirement for residents to wear a mask in public in several Chinese cities means many of them are needed.

Samples from patients' noses and throats are also been sent to the National Microbiology Lab in Winnipeg to be tested in parallel with the provincial lab. "It's really 24 hours, and people are working throughout the day and night to make that happen". Five of those tests were negative and nine are pending.

Both British Columbia and Alberta have said they are testing samples from a small, unspecified number of patients.

Although the country as a whole maintains its Level 2 advisory (Exercise Increased Caution), the State Department issued a special warning for the Wuhan region and noted that it had evacuated all non-essential personnel from China, limiting its ability to aid US citizens in Hubei province.

China is rushing to build a new hospital in a staggering 10 days to treat patients at the epicentre of a deadly virus outbreak that has stricken hundreds of people, state media reported Friday.

"It's still too early to draw conclusions about how severe the virus is because at the beginning of any outbreak you would focus more on the severe cases", he said.

In Canada, screening of arrivals at airports in Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver continues.

According to the CDC, the airports were selected because they see the largest number of arrivals from Wuhan, Hubei Province. If they have, and they're feeling ill, they will be referred to quarantine officers.

Yi, who returned from Wuhan just before the lockdown, pointed out huge numbers of people would have already left ahead of the Lunar New Year holiday, which began on Friday.

He added: "The UK is one of the first countries to have developed a world-leading test for the new coronavirus".

"As a precautionary measure, the hospital is following all appropriate infection control protocols", which would include isolating the patient".

The meeting in Whitehall was chaired by Health Secretary Matt Hancock, after 14 people in the United Kingdom were tested for the virus, before later being given the all-clear.

"This is an emergency in China, but it has not yet become a global health emergency", WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told reporters after two days of talks in Geneva.
