Coronavirus patients are trying to spread the disease by deliberately spitting at health care workers, it has been claimed.

A South African teacher trapped in Wuhan, the Chinese city at the centre of the outbreak, said the infected were also spitting on elevator buttons.

She is too ‘afraid to go outside’ in case she is struck with the deadly disease, as figures show cases have tripled in just three days.

Coronavirus can be spread from person to person via a sneeze or cough, and this strain has been regarded as highly contagious.

The number of people confirmed to have been infected with the Wuhan coronavirus has now exceeded 6,100 since the outbreak began almost a month ago.

Some 133 people have now died, most of whom lived in Wuhan, now a deserted city because of an unprecedented lockdown by Chinese officials.

Ms Bailing, the South African teacher trapped Wuhan, told the Metro: ‘I’ve heard shocking stories about infected people going out of their way to contaminate others by taking off their masks and spitting in doctors’ faces.

‘I saw one video of a man spitting on all of the buttons in an apartment elevator.’

The 23-year-old said she is ‘so scared’ to go outside and had only done so to do a ‘terrifying supplies run’.

She added: ‘I covered myself from head-to-toe with gloves on my hands, glasses to cover my eyes and of course, my mask.’
