The news comes as fears grow over the spread of coronavirus, which has resulted in several countries introducing measures to protect residents and tourists.

Last night it was announced that all 'non-essential' public spaces in the country, such as cafes and restaurants, were to close for the foreseeable future.
Prime Minister Édouard Philippe urged people to stay calm and take measures to help keep each other safe.
He said: "We have seen too many people in cafes and restaurants. In usual times, this would make me happy. Because this is the France we all love. But for a few weeks, this is not what we should be doing.
"Markets and food shops, pharmacies, gas stations, banks, newspaper and tobacco stores will remain open. Places of worships will remain open, but religious ceremonies and gatherings will be postponed."
