KOTA KINABALU: Health officials have been placed at the Kota Kinabalu International Airport as concerns mount over the spread of the Wuhan coronavirus.

Health and People’s Wellbeing Minister Datuk Frankie Poon said efforts were being taken to prevent the spread of the virus to Sabah.

Chinese tourists are among the top three nationals to visit Sabah.

The virus, first identified in China’s central city of Wuhan, is believed to have infected more than 300 people and spread to at least three other countries.

China's National Health Commission on Monday confirmed that the Wuhan coronavirus can be transmitted from human to human.

It was reported that medical staff treating the disease had also been infected.
