Fears that coronavirus could impact hospitals and aged care homes have been realised today, forcing Australian health authorities to take dramatic new steps.They have moved to quarantine dozens of medical staff at a Sydney hospital and workers at an aged care home.

At North Ryde Hospital in Western Sydney, 40 staff are now in quarantine after being in contact with a doctor diagnosed with the disease earlier this week.

And in nearby Macquarie Park, 11 people are in isolation after a long term employee tested positive.
