Finland has today become the twentieth nation outside of China to confirm a case of the killer coronavirus that is rapidly sweeping the world.

Health officials revealed the Chinese woman, who travelled to Lapland from Wuhan, has been quarantined in hospital to fight the deadly infection.

The UAE this morning became the first country in the Middle East to be struck down by the never-before-seen virus, which experts say is mutating as it spreads.

Four Chinese people from the same family who travelled to the emirates from Wuhan in Hubei have been taken into hospital after becoming ill.

The Wuhan coronavirus death toll now sits at 133, and more than 6,000 people have now been infected around the world – mostly in China.

Markku Broas from Lapland Central Hospital in Rovaniemi said the tourist left Hubei province five days ago, local media reports.

Finnish news website Yle claimed the tourist is a 32-year-old woman in ‘good health’. Her identity has not yet been revealed.

It added she sought medical help in Ivalo before being transferred to the hospital. It is not clear why she was taken there.

Officials at the National Institute for Health and Welfare said the risk of the killer virus spreading was still very small, despite the confirmed case.
