Chinese man with coronavirus symptoms put into isolation ward

A Chinese national, suspected of having  coronavirus, was shifted to an isolation ward of the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (Pims) from the Islamabad airport. Bing Yang was diagnosed with high temperature during the screening of 122 passengers who landed at Islamabad airport from Beijing. High temperature being one of the major symptoms of coronavirus, the authorities immediately separated Yang from other passengers and shifted him to the Pims hospital.

The disease has killed more than 425 people and infected a further 20,000 in China, nearly all of them in central Hubei province — the epicentre of the outbreak — and spread to two-dozen countries since it emerged in December last year.
