What are the flu-like symptoms of the new coronavirus?

Hundreds of people have been infected by the Wuhan coronavirus in mainland China, Thailand, South Korea, Japan and the U.S., which has one confirmed case.

"It's one person coming in from China", Trump said in Davos, Switzerland, during an appearance on CNBC. The previously reported death toll in China was nine, all in Hubei province.

The virus discovered in China is a new strain dubbed Novel Coronavirus or 2019-nCoV.

Macau on Wednesday reported its first confirmed case of the new SARS-like coronavirus as authorities announced all staff in the city's bustling casinos had been ordered to wear face masks.

The virus has infected more than 400 people across the country, with most cases in Wuhan, according to officials. Shortness of breath, chills and body aches are associated with more unsafe kinds of coronavirus, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Some symptoms of the disease are mild, such as developing a fever or coughing. Fourteen of them - one doctor and 13 nurses - were infected by a patient who had been hospitalized for neurosurgery but also had the coronavirus.

But the country's National Health Commission vice-minister Li Bin said there was evidence that the disease was "mainly transmitted through the respiratory tract". "I believe the government for sure, but I still feel fearful". "You have to rely on your immunity if you get an infection".

Fears of a pandemic initially spooked markets, with aviation and luxury goods stocks hit and China's yuan falling, but they were regaining their footing on Wednesday in approval of China's containment response. "It sounds very scary".

In Wuhan itself, infrared thermometers have been installed at the airport, train stations, coach terminals and passenger piers to measure the temperatures of passengers departing the city, according to state media.

Terry Gou, founder of Apple supplier Foxconn, said he was advising employees not to visit China.

Now there are no travel restrictions, although indications are that Chinese authorities are poised to enforce travel restriction around Wuhan.

"We are still in the process of learning more about this disease", Gao Fu, an academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and head of the Chinese Center for Disease Control, said at the news conference.

A resident of Shanghai who gave only her surname Ma said the government's first impulse had been to shut down information from the outset.

"If Wuhan is taking such drastic measures, we must assume widespread community transmission in this central China megacity & transport hub", tweeted Lawrence Gostin, a public health expert at Georgetown University Law School in Washington.

He said key questions remained over issues such as efficiency of human transmission and so-called "super spreader" events. Other coronaviruses circulate among animals including camels, cats and bats.

Countries in Asia and elsewhere have started to implement additional screening measures in order to catch people carrying to new coronavirus.

Russian Federation strengthened its sanitary and quarantine controls, Britain said it was starting enhanced monitoring of passengers from Wuhan, and Singapore started screening all passengers from China. Wuhan authorities said the province has confirmed 444 cases, which would bring the national total to more than 500.

In Hong Kong, where hundreds died during the SARS outbreak of 2002-2003, authorities have said they are on high alert, carrying out scans at the city's airport - one of the world's busiest - and at other global land and sea crossing points.

North Korea banned foreign tourists from Wednesday due to the virus, several foreign tour operators said, losing one of its main sources of foreign currency. Some qualifying boxing matches for the 2020 Olympics set for Wuhan were canceled and women's football qualifiers were shifted to Nanjing.
