The Welsh Government has said it is "likely" that people in Wales will require testing for the new Wuhan novel coronavirus.

There are no reported cases of the virus in Wales but Health Minister Vaughan Gething said they are treating it as an "enhanced public health incident."

The coronavirus is a new form of viral pneumonia that was first identified in China. Cities across the country remain on lockdown as the death toll for the new coronavirus outbreak rises.

Cases have been confirmed in the US, Japan, South Korea and Thailand.

There were at least five suspected cases being tested for the virus in the UK but they were given the all clear.

Welsh Government is closely monitoring the emergence of a novel coronavirus originating in Wuhan, China. Due to the enlarging geographic area affected, and evidence of person to person transmission, it is likely that people will require assessment in Wales and the wider UK.
