In Wuhan, crews are working on building a 1,000-bed hospital to treat coronavirus patients with a short timeline - the goal is to have it ready by February 3. As many as 774 people died in the SARS epidemic, which reached almost 30 countries.

The patients have also had a high fever and a cough, officials said. The number of confirmed cases in mainland China rose to more than 800 as of January 23, the National Health Commission said in a statement.

Dubai International Airport in 2018 served 89.15 million passengers, retaining its world-number-one spot of welcoming the largest number of foreign passengers for the fifth year in a row.

The first cases appeared last month in Wuhan, an industrial and transportation hub in central China.

Still, the CDC says that the public health risk is "low". The original post, which was shared more than 4,000 times and spread further via copycat posts, presents a CDC patent for a coronavirus genome sequence as evidence that it is trying to profit from the epidemic.

According to Nancy Messonnier, M.D., director of the CDC's National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, "CDC has been proactively preparing for (the) introduction of this virus".

The coronavirus was first reported on New Year's Eve 2019, with the first symptoms beginning in early December.

The mystery disease was initially thought to be spreading from animal-to-person, but there are growing indications that limited person-to-person spread is happening.

The government ordered travel agencies to suspend sales of domestic and global package tours after imposing transport curbs on cities near the center of the outbreak.

It continued "We are also monitoring the current situation in Wuhan very closely and will provide the latest developments to our passengers on our website accordingly".

China is on a seven-day Lunar New Year holiday starting Friday, a period when Shanghai Disney park would usually be packed with tourists.

Health authorities around the world are taking action to prevent a global pandemic, with cases reported in Japan, Thailand, South Korea and the United States.

A spokesperson for the NSW Department of Health said the locations of the patients under testing would not be disclosed until their diagnoses were confirmed.

All this information would have been based on preliminary numbers and it is possible that there are other, milder cases which have not been officially diagnosed, suggested Dr. Isaac Bogoch, an infectious diseases specialist at Toronto General Hospital.

Coronaviruses are a group of viruses that range in severity from the common cold to the more deadly Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), which caused more than 700 deaths in a 2002-2003 outbreak.
