In China are scrambling to check the fit of a new disease that has left at least nine people dead and sickened more than 440, after it was confirmed the virus can be passed between people.
Where Virus was detected

Steps Taken by the Wuhan Authorities
- Tour agencies have been prevented from taking groups out of Wuhan and the number of thermal monitors and screening areas in public areas will be enhanced. Traffic police will also carry spot inspections on private vehicles arriving in and out of the city to look for live chicken or wild animals, after the virus was connected to seafood and live animal market, according to a report by state media outlet the People’s Daily, citing Wuhan’s Municipal Health Commission.
Cases in Asia
In Asia, cases have been identified in Taiwan, South Korea, Thailand and Japan, while officials in the US established their first event on Tuesday and there have been rumours of likely problems in Australia.
