In one of the videos widely circulating on Twitter and YouTube, a woman and a man can be seen being escorted into a metal box at the back of a pickup truck.

The woman can be heard screaming after workers donning pink hazmat suits closed the door of the cube.

It is suggested that they had refused to be isolated.

Someone who is infected with the coronavirus can spread it with just a simple cough or a sneeze, scientists say.

At least 1,116 people with the virus are now confirmed to have died and more than 45,200 have been infected in at least 28 countries and regions. But experts predict the true number of people with the disease could be 100,000, or even as high as 350,000 in Wuhan alone, as they warn it may kill as many as two in 100 cases.
