Bangkok faces the greatest threat of the killer coronavirus spreading there from China, scientists have warned.

Academics at the University of Southampton today used travel data to work out which cities around the world are most likely to see cases in the future.

Los Angeles and New York place in the top 20 and London is more at risk than any other city in Europe, researchers warned.

Paris was 27th on the list and Frankfurt was 30th, despite cases having been confirmed in France and Germany already.

Five people in the US are battling the virus but none have yet been confirmed in the UK.

The UK’s Department of Health today confirmed almost 100 people have now been tested for the deadly coronavirus.

All of them have come back as negative, but Public Health England director said she believes the virus is already in the UK.

So far, the virus has spread to some 17 countries or territories outside of mainland China but experts said they expect the global infections to continue.

The research comes as European and American citizens stranded in Wuhan, the Chinese city at the centre of the outbreak, wait to be rescued by officials scrambling to put escape flights in motion.

Wuhan has been under lockdown along with several other cities in the Hubei province for almost a week.

Millions of people have been contained to try and limit the spread of the coronavirus.
