Three Chinese National are being held inside Le Lagoon Resort and were guarded by custom officials from last night till this morning.
YTSNews does not know yet whether they came to Vanuatu through Australia or Fiji but a circular sent to Resort staff says they came directly from China.
Le Lagoon Resort staff were told that these three guests were not to be allowed to leave their room.
The three Chinese Nationals had booked to stay at Le Lagoon Resort and Customs Officials brought them to the Resort from the Airport under strict supervision and ordered them to stay inside the room and not leave and kept watch on them overnight.
The resort staff were instructed to bring breakfast into their rooms in the morning and that they are not allowed to enter the restaurant.
The circular also told staff there is nothing to worry about and that a decision will be made today by custom officials whether to send the three Chinese nationals back to China.
It is not yet known whether the three Chinese nationals were tested for the Coronavirus.
World Media reported that the Wuhan coronavirus outbreak is a public health emergency of international concern, the head of the World Health Organization (WHO) has declared, but he warned governments not to impose travel or trade restrictions on China.
Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said the organization decided to declare an emergency, which gives WHO greater powers to direct the response, because of the danger that coronavirus could be devastating if it spreads to countries with weak public health systems. He emphasised that the move was no reflection on China, adding that the country’s response had saved the world from many more cases and deaths.
