AFP – China’s women’s football team has been placed in quarantine in a Brisbane hotel after arriving for an Olympic qualifying competition over concerns about the deadly coronavirus, reports said Wednesday.

Queensland state chief health officer Jeannette Young said no one from the group had shown any symptoms and it was a precautionary measure.

“They’ve been extremely cooperative, as has the Chinese consulate,” she was quoted as saying by broadcaster ABC.
