The outbreak began in the central Chinese city of Wuhan and has spread nationwide and overseas, fuelled by millions of people traveling for the holiday.

Schools that are currently on Lunar New Year holidays will remain closed until February 17 and education authorities have asked universities to extend leave for students.

Ms Lam also said she had sought assistance from China's State Council to ensure there were adequate supplies of masks. Australia has a number of measures to help stop the spread of coronavirus — but with warnings the disease has a week-long incubation period, carriers could already be in the country.

It’s been around since 2012 ! 40 people dead is a long long long way from epidemic lol. We had over 100 die from flu last year . And only the very elderly & already sick . ( as in China ) Called fear - porn
