Coronavirus: Chinese embassy in Paris finds woman who ‘cheated’ checks

In the wake of the breakout of the Coronavirus in China, a Wuhan woman who through the use of tablets bypassed health checks at the airport in France, has been tracked down by the Chinese embassy resident in the country.

This was after the woman boasted on social media that she had been suffering from a fever, but managed to reduce her symptoms with medicine.

Her post which went viral was however criticised by other social media users.

The embassy has now confirmed that her symptoms are under control.

The woman left Wuhan – where the new coronavirus emerged late last year – before flights were suspended, but when thermal scanning was in place.

Since yesterday, public transport has been shut down, with residents told not to leave the city.

At least 25 people with the virus have died. It was first reported to the World Health Organization 31 December.

The virus has spread to countries as far as South Korea, Japan and the US.

People have been thermally scanned when leaving Wuhan, and arriving at their destination. This picture was taken in Indonesia on Thursday
