Two more cases were reported in the region of Veneto and some public spaces were closed.

Two more people have also been suffering from a highly contagious illness in Veneto, although it is not clear if they have coronavirus.

The outbreak comes after Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, director general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), said he is worried the chance to contain the coronavirus outbreak is "narrowing".

Although the number of cases outside of China remained low, the WHO is worried about clusters of infections which have no clear link to China.

The World Health Organization said Friday that time was running out to stop the spread of the coronavirus outbreak as the number of cases outside China grew.

WHO head Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said, "We are still in a phase where containment is possible,” but he warned “our window of opportunity is narrowing."
