A video filmed in a hotel in Hangzhou, China, shows a robot with shelves of food moving from door-to-door carrying food to residents, Reuters reported.

"Hello everyone. Cute Little Peanut is serving food to you now," the robot was saying, according to a translation. "Enjoy your meal. If you need anything else, please message the staff on WeChat."

Multiple robots were employed on each floor of the 16-story hotel on January 27 and 28 to reduce human contact and prevent spread of the novel coronavirus, 2019-nCoV, Reuters reported.

Passengers on a flight from Singapore to Hangzhou are being held under quarantine after two of over 335 people on the plane were found with a fever, according to the Reuters report.

As of Wednesday morning local time, the novel coronavirus had killed 132 people in China and infected nearly 6,000 people worldwide.

It has spread to at least 16 countries outside of China, including Australia, Cambodia, Canada, France, Germany, Ivory Coast, Japan, Malaysia, Nepal, Singapore, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand, the US, and Vietnam.
