Majorca Coronavirus fears: Health chiefs try to calm British tourists over outbreak 1

Sources from the Ministry of Health revealed that in the last days there have been four suspicions of possible causes in the Balearic Islands, but that all four have been ruled out because it was the flu.

France was the first country in Europe to have a positive coronavirus case, with three confirmations on January 25.

Currently, there are already six people infected in the country by the Wuhan virus, without any deaths.

At the moment in Spain there is only one confirmed case, a German tourist who remains isolated on the island of La Gomera, Canary Islands but he has no signs of illness despite the positive test.

The FCO has updated its travel warning in accordance with the confirmed cases of the disease.

A statement on the FCO website reads: “There is an ongoing outbreak of coronavirus. The virus originated in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China, but cases have been confirmed in other parts of China and in some other countries, including Spain. You should comply with any additional screening measures put in place by the authorities.”

Meanwhile, Public Health England has also issued advice for any travellers who find themselves in regions which have been hit by the epidemic.

They include things such as washing hands regularly, using tissues when coughing or sneezing and disposing of them immediately and isolating anyone suspected to be infected.

Experts have also said that alcohol-based hand sanitiser can help boost preventative measures.
