However, despite the illness taking over, The Giggling Squid on West Street and the Suum Vietnamese Kitchen on Spittal Street have both said that their ‘business hasn’t been impacted’.

Maliko Eung, who is the general manager at the Suum Vietnamese Kitchen said: “The restaurant haven’t lost any customers since the Coronavirus started to spread.

“Business has been good, and everyone has not really mentioned it to be honest.

“We have had a few Asian people come in and away from that, we’ve had a lot of our loyal and regular customers still come in, so business has been the same for us.”

Additionally, national reports have highlighted that a number of Chinese restaurants have either closed or shut due to the outbreak.

Nelly Gerardo, who is the general manager of the Giggling Squid then added: “It’s terrible that it’s spreading but for us, we really haven’t noticed a decline in customers.

“In fact, over the last couple of weeks, we’ve actually got busier than what we have been before so it hasn’t affected us.

“We’ve had people come back during that time and whilst I think it’s a bit harsh that some businesses have shut because of what’s happening, but at the moment for us, we’re doing really well.”
