The death toll from the Wuhan coronavirus now stands at 80, with almost 2,800 cases confirmed across China, as the country initiates emergency procedures to try and rein in the pathogen's global spread.
Making that task more difficult is the fact that the virus can be spread before any symptoms appear, Chinese health authorities said Sunday, meaning carriers may not realize they are infected before they transmit the virus to others. Currently, there is no cure and vaccination to this fatal virus.

With the outbreak of the Coronavirus in China, and people flying home to China for the lunar new year. It is inevitable that the virus will be brought back to our country where it will become an epidemic.

There has already been 5 cases in Australia and the number of infected will only increase after Chinese New Year.

The Virus can primarily be spread through close contact with another individual, in particular through coughing and sneezing on somebody else who is within a range of about 3 to 6 feet from that person, making it deadly.

The Australian Government and all major city airports should stop all incoming flights from China as soon as possible to stop the virus from spreading into Australia.
