There were 44 Canadians killed by that strain of coronavirus.

The man had traveled from Wuhan, China, which has been identified as the epicentre of the virus outbreak.

But Hajdu said the Canadian government is not, at the moment, planning a similar airlift for Canadians citizens who might be there.

One Portuguese national living in Wuhan told Lusa that in what is China's seventh largest city, with 11 million inhabitants, the silence is "total", with "establishments closed and streets empty".

Anyone travelling from Wuhan is required to register and quarantine themselves for 14 days - the maximum incubation period for the virus. "It's really family members travelling with the patient who are at the highest risk". "Canadians should not be concerned that they can pick up the virus from an infected individual by any casual contact, such as walking through the airport or another public place".

Public health officials say the woman's husband had been showing mild symptoms on his flight from Guangzhou to Toronto.

"We've also put into place measures at the Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver global airports, reminding travellers to inform a border services officer if they're experiencing flu-like symptoms".

The Post's Tom Blackwell reports the vast majority of the 19 people under investigation in various parts of the province have been admitted to hospital and are in isolation, with appropriate protective measures taken around them, said Yaffe.

The virus quickly spread, with the first confirmed death reported on January 9 by Chinese officials.

Toronto Public Health (TPH) says the wife of a man who was the first confirmed case of coronavirus in Canada has now been confirmed to have the virus herself. In the initial case, the man's symptoms did not manifest when he disembarked from the plane.

"The system is prepared to investigate, manage any persons under investigation, contact tracing any confirmed or presumptive confirmed cases", shared Williams. 237 patients are said to be in serious condition.

"In many ways, this new case is not surprising", and the risk to Ontarians remains low, Ontario's Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr. David Williams reiterated in a press conferenceon Monday.

Peter Donnelly, the president of Public Health Ontario, said the coronavirus is far different. Despite its rapid spread, as of Sunday, the virus had not been declared an worldwide public health emergency by the World Health Organization.

"Be careful, be vigilant, but you don't have to change your life at the moment", he said. The passengers were told to follow up with health officials should they develop signs and symptoms of the disease. (Reuters) Symptoms of coronavirus According to World Health Organization, common signs of infection include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties.

"It's a swab that goes down the back of your nose into the back of your throat", she said.

The new form of coronavirus, a close cousin to respiratory illnesses such as SARS and MERS, originated in China and has spread rapidly in recent weeks.

China today updated the death toll from the virus to 80, with more than 2,700 infected.

"There have been a number of cases in several countries now, and all those cases in other countries have been travel related", Yaffe noted.

It is not clear how lethal the new coronavirus is or even whether it is as risky as the ordinary flu, which results in 12,200 hospitalizations and about 3,500 deaths in Canada yearly. A media advisory will be issued shortly with further details.
