Coronavirus has killed 25 people and the city of Wuhan is in lockdown. What are authorities doing to protect Australians?
By Sophie Meixner
Twenty-five people have died of coronavirus in China, with fears the newly-identified respiratory illness could spread to Australia.
The death toll from the virus, which causes pneumonia and spreads through human-to-human contact, is rising steeply. Cases have spread to surrounding Asian countries and to one man in the United States.
And now several people in Australia are being tested "every day" for the deadly virus.
The central Chinese city of Wuhan, ground zero of the outbreak, is in lockdown, with all flights suspended and transport networks closed.
Eight cities in Hubei province have been affected, with a combined population of 25 million subject to the lockdown.
So how worried should we be in Australia about this new disease, and what are authorities doing to prevent it?
What are authorities doing?
The only airline offering direct flights between Australia and Wuhan is China Eastern Airlines, which flies into Sydney three times a week.
The final direct flight from Wuhan to Sydney before the lockdown began was China Eastern flight MU749, which touched down in Sydney just after 11:00am on Wednesday.
Passengers were met off the plane by NSW Health officials as well as Commonwealth biosecurity officials.
"If they have symptoms of an infectious disease, they will be assessed by New South Wales Health," Prime Minister Scott Morrison said.
Shortly afterwards came news of the possible coronavirus patient in NSW.
Airlines are already legally obliged to report sick passengers to biosecurity staff before the plane is unloaded, but an additional information campaign was rolled out on Thursday directed at passengers arriving from Wuhan.
Information pamphlets on coronavirus were distributed to all incoming passengers from Wuhan, while brightly coloured signage provided health warnings.
"Been in Wuhan, China? Feel unwell? Tell a biosecurity officer now," the signage advises.
The signs also urged people to wash their hands, cover their mouths when coughing, and report to a doctor if they experienced any symptoms.
However, authorities can't guarantee they can contain the threat at the border because coronavirus may have a long incubation period.
This means some people may not have symptoms when they arrive in Australia, but may develop them over the next week.
On Thursday the Government's travel advisory site SmartTraveller updated its advice for travellers bound for Wuhan to "reconsider their need to travel to Wuhan".
However, the rest of China remains at normal safety precaution level.
What does the World Health Organisation say?
The World Health Organisation (WHO) has the power to declare virus outbreaks a "public health emergency of international concern" (PHEIC).
An outbreak can only be a PHEIC if it poses a risk to more than one country, and if it requires a coordinated international response to control.
Past PHEICs include the outbreaks of SARS, bird flu, and the Ebola and Zika outbreaks.
On Thursday, an emergency WHO committee met to decide whether to designate coronavirus as a PHEIC, but WHO officials decided to defer the decision.
The first case of an infection with the new coronavirus has been discovered in the United States.
A man from Washington state returned home after a trip to Wuhan, China, on Jan. 15, sought medical attention on Jan. 19 and now is in isolation at Providence Regional Medical Center in Everett, Wash.
State health officials say his condition is quite good and even referred to him as "healthy." But testing from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Jan. 20 confirm that he is infected with the Wuhan coronavirus. The man arrived back in the U.S. prior to the implementation of screening at three domestic airports on Friday.
About 300 cases of the virus and six deaths have been reported in China, and health officials there and around the world are ramping up precautions to stem the spread.
Chinese authorities are trying to control the flow of people in and out of the eastern city of Wuhan, where a strain of the coronavirus was discovered last month. Wuhan's mayor has asked residents to stay in the city to try to prevent the spread of the virus, which can cause respiratory symptoms such as pneumonia.
"Cars may be randomly tested in case wild animals, a potential source for the virus, are transported, and tour groups are prohibited from leaving the city," NPR's Amy Cheng reports from Beijing.
Cases of coronavirus, named 2019-nCoV, have also been confirmed in Japan, Thailand and South Korea.
Many airports around the world, including three in the U.S. — JFK in New York, SFO in San Francisco and LAX in Los Angeles — are setting up additional security screenings for passengers coming from infected areas.
At a press conference on Tuesday afternoon, the CDC said that it's expanding the screenings to include Chicago's O'Hare and Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson international airports and that any passengers originating from Wuhan into the U.S. will be funneled to one of the five airports with screening, even if this requires rebooking them on different flights.
Other nations are taking similar precautions. Russia, India and North Korea have all started checking people for fever on inbound flights from China. Australia and the Philippines are also checking passengers and have quarantined some suspected cases.

China built a lab to study SARS and Ebola in Wuhan - and US biosafety experts warned in 2017 that a virus could 'escape' the facility that's become key in fighting the outbreak
Scientists warned in 2017 that a SARS-like virus could escape a lab set up that year in Wuhan, China, to study some of the most dangerous pathogens in the world.
Now, a SARS-like coronavirus has infected more than 800 there, spread to at least 10 other countries and killed 25 in Wuhan and nearby provinces.
China installed the first of a planned five to seven biolabs designed for maximum safety in Wuhan in 2017, for the purpose of studying the most high-risk pathogens, including the Ebola and the SARS viruses.
Tim Trevan, a Maryland biosafety consultant, told Nature that year, when the lab was on the cusp of opening, that he worried that China's culture could make the institute unsafe because 'structures where everyone feels free to speak up and openness of information are important.'
