Coronavirus quarantine keeps Finns in Tenerife hotel lockdown

He told The Guardian: "The Italian guy who was infected had left before we came, so if they let us go, we couldn't have come into contact with him".

A doctor visiting the hotel had been diagnosed with Covid-19, the flu-like infection that was first known as the coronavirus.

Several hundred guests and staff are now on lockdown inside the hotel.

Because people's freedom is being touched on, the matter is in the hands of a judge, a spokesman for a Canary Island regional court said.

Hotel workers queue to get tested at the H10 Costa Adeje Palace hotel in the Canary Island of Tenerife, Spain. Its management declined to comment on Tuesday.

According to The Associated Press, the press office for the town of Adeje, a municipality in Tenerife where the hotel is located, also said Tuesday that H10 Costa Adeje Palace hotel in Tenerife, the largest of the Canary Islands, was in quarantine.

Guest Christopher Betts said over the phone from his room that there were police cars stationed at all entrances.

"We're told we're in quarantine. The hotel seems to be acting normally, except that we can not go out", he said.

Harley's sister, Rosie Mitford, said: "We want to come back home now".

Hannah says she's had very little information from the hotel about what's going on, and she hasn't tried to contact British authorities yet. Before Monday, Spain had identified two cases - a German tourist in La Gomera, another Canary Island, and a British man in Mallorca.

In Italy, the number of people infected grew to 322, or 45% in 24 hours, and deaths of patients with the virus rose to 11.

One of the hotel guests, Rebecca Lunt, told NBC News via Facebook messenger that guests were not allowed to leave, but the restaurant inside the hotel was still open. "Until the sanitary authorities warn, you must remain in your rooms".

Three days into their stay, on Tuesday morning, they were advised not to leave their hotel room.

Spain is the second-most visited country in the world after France and tourism is crucial for the domestic economy, accounting for around 12 per cent of its gross domestic product.

Earlier today, it was confirmed that a hotel in Tenerife is on lockdown due to a confirmed case of the coronavirus.

The first case was that of a German man on La Gomera island in the Canaries who tested positive on January 31 followed by a British man who tested positive in Mallorca in the Balearic Islands on February 9. Seven people have died, all of them elderly patients suffering other pathologies.

"After they've taken your temperature, they give you a mask and a thermometer and you can move about the grounds".

Many said there is confusion over whether they should stay in their rooms.

"We're talking about a virus that doesn't respect borders", Italy's Health Minister Roberto Speranza said.

They fear that being locked in the four-star hotel they will face the same outcome as passengers onboard the Diamond Princess ship, where the virus spread as the boat remained quarantined off Yokohama.

"I mean, it's only day two and we're struggling".

'It's been a bit hit and miss, but we have been given basic "picnic" food and we have now been allowed out of our rooms at our own risk, ' she added.
