Four patients are being tested for the flu-like coronavirus in hospitals in Scotland, British media reported on Thursday.

It is thought that the unidentified patients were from the Chinese city of Wuhan, which is believed to be the source of the outbreak of the virus.

Edinburgh University infection expert, Professor Juergen Haas told the BBC that there were four suspected cases in Scotland.

He added that it was "very likely" that cases would be confirmed in the UK.

Three of the patients are being treated in Edinburgh and a fourth in Glasgow, the broadcaster said.

Britain's health ministry told The National that there were no confirmed cases of coronavirus in the UK.

The Health Minister Matt Hancock, said in the British parliament on Thursday that 571 cases and 17 deaths had been confirmed so far by the Chinese government.

“This is a rapidly developing situation and the number of deaths and the number of cases is likely to be higher than those that have been confirmed so far and I expect them to rise,” he said.
