  • People wear masks in Manila Philippines on Thursday amid fears of the novel coronavirus infection spreading

The flu-like virus broke out in the central Chinese city of Wuhan last month.

"In the view of the spurt of cases being reported in China and travel related cases appearing in many countries.all non-essential travel to China to be avoided", it said.

The first cases in the Middle East were confirmed Wednesday, a family of four from Wuhan that was visiting the United Arab Emirates.

"We were feeling increasingly uneasy as the situation developed so rapidly and we were still in the city", Aoyama said, his voice muffled by a white surgical mask.

Concern is also growing that thousands of Chinese factory workers on Lunar New Year holidays may struggle to get back to work next week, due to extensive travel restrictions imposed to stop the spread of the virus. He said that while scientists believe the outbreak was sparked by an animal virus, it's unclear if there are other factors driving the epidemic.

Already China has more cases of this coronavirus than it had of SARS seven years ago.

Nearly all the deaths have been in the central province of Hubei, home to about 60 million people and now under virtual lockdown.

The pathogen is believed to have been spawned in a market that sold wild game, spreading far and wide by a Lunar New Year holiday season in which hundreds of millions of Chinese travel domestically or overseas.

The World Health Organization (WHO) is set to convene an Emergency Committee meeting on Thursday to discuss the rapid spread of the risky virus.

China's government has also taken extraordinary steps to arrest the virus's spread, including effectively quarantining more than 50 million people in Wuhan and surrounding Hubei province.

It has an incubation time of between one and 14 days and there are signs it may be able to spread before any symptoms show.

Like the similar Sars and influenza viruses, the new coronavirus is thought to be particularly a risk for elderly and people with pre-existing illnesses.

The ministry also said it would examine current Israeli policy on travel to and from China.

Australia, South Korea, Singapore and New Zealand will quarantine all evacuees regardless of whether they showed symptoms for at least two weeks, while the United States and Japan were planning voluntary isolation for shorter periods. "They are students and business travellers".

In South Korea, protesters who want facilities earmarked as quarantine centers moved away from residential areas threw eggs and insults at a minister trying to mollify them.

Hundreds of foreigners were evacuated from the epicentre of the outbreak on Wednesday, while Australians stuck in the city and its surrounds are anxiously waiting for details about evacuation plans.

The first of up to four planned flights to Wuhan had been due to depart South Korea on January 30 morning, but were delayed for unspecified reasons, Yonhap news agency reported.

Before embarking on the final leg of their journey, the passengers were "approved to continue on to California by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention", the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services said in a news release Wednesday.

Some 250 French citizens and 100 other Europeans are expected to be flown out of Wuhan on board two French planes this week. Japan's foreign ministry said a second flight carrying 210 Japanese evacuees landed Thursday at Tokyo's Haneda airport.

"After a situations assessment this morning, El Al made a decision to pause its flights to China until March 25", the company said in a statement.

Some major airlines have halted all flights to China, but so far Qantas is not among them.
