Four Chinese citizens with coronavirus in UAE are tourists - official

DUBAI, Jan 29 (Reuters) - The four members of a Chinese family who have been diagnosed in the United Arab Emirates with the new coronavirus were tourists who arrived from the Chinese city of Wuhan on Jan. 16, UAE health ministry official Hussein al-Rand told Reuters.

Rand declined to say which of the UAE’s seven emirates the family were being treated in, had visited, or which airport they arrived in. He said the government had traced those who had come into contact with the family in the UAE, with all testing negative for the virus. (Writing by Lisa Barrington)
