Outbreak ‘getting bigger’ – WHO

Written by on February 28, 2020

One of the two hotels placed under a preventative quarantine in Abu Dhabi tells the BBC “no one can leave or enter the property until it is deemed safe to do so”.

A spokeswoman for the W Abu Dhabi confirmed it had been placed under a “temporary lockdown” and that all guests were currently undergoing screening.

She added: “The safety and well-being of our guests is of paramount important to us and we will comply with the direction provided by the authorities.”

The W – owned by hotel giant Marriott – said it was rebooking guests arriving on Friday to its sister hotels nearby.
