"He was confirmed as positive after a series of tests early this morning," Victorian Health Minister Jenny Mikakos told reporters. Heavy equipment works at a construction site for a field hospital in Wuhan in central China's Hubei Province.Australia's chief medical officer Professor Brendan Murphy this morning convened an emergency meeting of the Australian health protection principle committee to discuss this first positive case and discuss the protocol for contact tracing of passengers who sat near the patient on the plane.

The man had been in the city of Wuhan for the past two weeks before arriving in Melbourne last Sunday. "He is not in intensive care. He is being cared for in a negative-pressure isolation room and all infection control precautions are being used both for when he has visitors, but also by health care staff to protect them," she said.

Thete were 3 confirmed already..

contains sulfur, eats blood clotted, - wonder what THAT is - and has a feel of tick and woolen mammal with yellowish hair (lion, lama, camel, hyena,? the name is not comming to my mind) coronavirus

9NewsSyd If a virus is so serious why are they being quarantined at home? Do they live alone? Take it serious from day 1 don’t wait until it’s everywhere...

Why were the planes allowed to land? Well I hope the get 12 days quarantine.... like my dogs did..... 🤬

It’s not just people coming from there it is people flying their way in thru other places .. if they think they they have been exposed they are going to want the best medical they can get.

How about quarantine every person coming in from there? 🤦🏼‍♂️

Don’t be fooled, this is going to get ugly! China is already building a hospital for the infected. Do you think China would be building an emergency hospital if they had everything under control? STAY SAFE EVERYONE cronavirus

The airports should have been screening a lot sooner and that plane yesterday should not have been allowed to land

Looks like a mouldy passionfruit

Why government let people from Wuhan entered to Sydney airport yesterday

Very frightening and concerning for the world is this virus. 🙏🌏😒

Corona virus .. sorry can't work today

At least six people undergoing testing for deadly coronavirus in AustraliaTwo people in Queensland are being tested for the deadly coronavirus, health authorities say, while another four cases are under investigation in NSW Why aren't we stopping the flights from China until this is resolved? Stop reporting that all the passengers were tested. They were checked, questioned & given leaflets! It has an incubation of 14 days & they were told if they become unwell they should contact a doctor and tell them they’ve traveled from Wuhan. ThisIsNotJournalism

So spare us this sensationalist bs and do a journalism course. Great minds at still trying to connect coronavirus to climate change, Donald Trump, or 26 Jan. Plenty more to go before unusual . 100 died from flu right here in Australia last year . 59.000 caught flu . Happens every year. It’s called getting sick .
