Darwin has direct flights to Shenzhen in southern China with Donghai Airlines, with multiple flights arriving from the city this week. A Chinese man who has a confirmed case of the virus in NSW travelled from Shenzhen and had contact with a person treatment. Obviously you dont want them to be sitting in a waiting room. Dr Heggie said people also needed to be aware if they Plan in place to stop virus spreading in NT WILL ZWAR will.zwar@news.com.au diagnosed with the virus from the city most affected by the virus, Wuhan. Coronavirus has killed 56 people in China and the city of Wuhan, the epicentre of the illness, remains in lockdown. NT Health Department chief executive Dr Hugh Heggie said NT border security and biosecurity measures had already been upgraded to prevent the virus entering through a Territory port. We have a local plan at our airport and marine port, our biosecurity officer is meeting with and communicating with the captain of flights that they need to provide information to all passengers and all passengers are assessed for risk, he said. That is someone taken to that part of China, thats eastern China not southern China where the Donghai flight comes from and to. We have got our own local approach, if someone was identified as potentially having this illness we have a specific plan how they would be transported to hospital and taken to hadnt been travelling, given there had been cases of the virus transmitting through people. If somebody becomes unwell after they arrive back in Darwin theyll be given very clear advice to seek treatment from professionals including general practitioners in Darwin, clinicians in Darwin and emergency departments in the NT, he said. We need to be vigilant but not alarmed given what we know about the very small numbers weve had in Australia. Fourth NSW case feared NSW health authorities are investigating a fourth possible case of the deadly coronavirus in the state after a patient tested positive during a preliminary examination. NSW Health yesterday cleared four people who were being investigated for possible infection. However, results showed one patient who was being assessed had tested positive during initial examinations. Confirmation was expected today. Public health follow-up of this probable case is being undertaken in accordance with the national guidelines and the patient remains in isolation, NSW Health said in a statement yesterday. Of the five cases that were under investigation today, four have now been cleared of the infection.
