The Chinese national women's football team is in quarantine in a hotel after flying into Australia via Wuhan, the epicentre of the coronavirus outbreak.

The coronavirus has spread to Queensland with the state's health department confirming late on Wednesday a Chinese man has tested positive and is isolated in the Gold Coast University Hospital.

The team was training in Brisbane ahead of an Olympic qualifying tournament in Sydney and the name of the hotel has not yet been released by authorities.They will remain in isolation until February 5, which would be two weeks since they were in Wuhan Province. They were due to play Thailand at Sydney's Campbelltown Stadium on February 3."There is absolutely no risk to anyone else in that hotel or staff in that hotel," she said.

Football Federation Australia said on Wednesday evening it was assessing the ramifications of the coronavirus developments on the Olympic qualifying tournament."This major new development confirmed that health experts believe the coronavirus is contagious before people show symptoms, and contacts of any confirmed cases must now be isolated following exposure," the FFA statement said.

"Any child returning from Hubei Province, in the centre of China where the capital Wuhan has seen the majority of cases, or teacher cannot return to a school for 14 days since leaving Hubei," she said.
