British tourists who are trapped in a Tenerife hotel after an Italian visitor and his wife tested positive for coronavirus will discover their fate tonight.

Around 1,000 guests are being kept inside the H10 Costa Adeje Palace with padlocks on the doors, police patrolling the complex and the resort ‘closed down’ over virus fears.

The panic was sparked when an Italian doctor tested positive yesterday, and the results of his second test are due back from Madrid tonight.

If he tests positive for a second time, the trapped tourists are likely to face a longer quarantine.

Authorities will announce their plans in a press conference at 8pm local time (7pm UK time) this evening.

The crisis deepened further this afternoon when the doctor’s wife also tested positive for the virus. She is facing her second test in Santa Cruz tomorrow.

One British couple at the hotel, David Hoon and Pamela Scott, voiced their fear today that ‘we stand more chance of catching the coronavirus’ during the hotel lockdown.

Speaking to MailOnline, they claimed hotel staff were failing to keep them informed and said they were surviving on meagre snacks after being locked in their rooms.

Another British guest, Christopher Betts, said holidaymakers had received ‘no information whatsoever’.

The trapped tourists are facing medical tests of their own today after regional health authority staff arrived at the hotel wearing masks.

Other guests were locked out of the building with Spanish authorities scrambling to contain the virus, amid growing fears over the spiralling outbreak coming from Italy.

Another patient has tested positive in Barcelona in a separate case, bringing Spain’s total to five including the doctor and his wife.
