Medics on Air China plane check passengers' temperatures in bid to contain new virus

Medics check the temperature of passengers on a plane before letting them off in an attempt to contain a new SARS-like virus sweeping China.

Video filmed on Air China flight CA119 from Wuhan to Macau on January 12 shows medics in protective clothing using a thermometer-type device on seated passengers one-by-one.

The video was filmed on a plane after it landed at Macau airport.

A man surnamed Yang who works for the Macao Health Bureau confirmed over the phone that such checks are taking place in the southern Chinese region, the Associated Press reported.

According to reports, more than 200 cases of the Chinese coronavirus have been confirmed, with three dead.

The spread of the viral pneumonia comes days before millions of Chinese nationals travel abroad for the Lunar New Year holidays.

Experts in China said on Monday that human-to-human transmission has been confirmed.

Airports in Singapore, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Thailand, Japan and the US have reportedly stepped up surveillance.
