China coronavirus panic: Hundreds of flights cancelled in major airport after outbreak
This led to authorities corralling thousands of people into the basement area of a section of the airport to have immediate anti-body tests.
An estimated 17,000 people at the airport have already been swabbed in the race to halt the spread of the pathogen.
Workers that had previously left the airport were ordered back to the site via taxi for testing.
Thousands of people have been ordered into quarantine and up to 500 flights have been cancelled.
