China has ordered a foreign national to leave the country after he launched an assault on hazmat-clad health officers who asked him to wear a face mask to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

Shocking video shows the man, a Moroccan citizen, yelling ‘motherf******’ before throwing his phone at the workers yesterday in north-western China’s Xi’an city.

The foreign resident is facing deportation after being arrested by local police for disrupting public services, according to an official statement.

The man allegedly became infuriated after the community workers ordered him to wear a face mask before entering the residential complex he lived in. 

‘We received a report that a foreigner in our jurisdiction did not wear a mask while entering the residential complex he lived in and disobeyed the property management staff,’ the local Yanta Police wrote in a statement yesterday.

‘His behaviours disrupted the public order and we ordered him to leave the country within a time limit.’

The statement did not mention the man’s nationality, but officers confirmed to MailOnline that he comes from Morocco. 

A witness told the local press that the foreign national appeared to be intoxicated.

‘I was at the convenience shop nearby when I heard someone smashing things and shouting,’ the witness told Pear Video. ‘He smelled of alcohol.’

Communities around China have enforced strict measures on their residents amid fears of a second wave of infections. 

Citizens are required to wear face masks regularly and show dedicated barcodes on their phone to prove they don’t carry the coronavirus before entering public places.  

China is seeing a surge of new coronavirus cases from air passengers travelling from abroad.

Over the weekend, China banned entry to all foreigners, including non-nationals with valid visas and residence permits. International flights to China were also restricted in a move to curb the rising number of imported cases.

The novel coronavirus has infected over 81,000 people in China and claimed at least 3,300 lives.

Globally, there are over 721,000 confirmed cases and the death toll is nearing 34,000. Almost 20,000 people are diagnosed with the deadly disease in the UK and 1,228 people have died.

Britons should not expect to get back to ‘normal life’ for six months or even longer, the government’s deputy chief medical officer warned today.

Dr Jenny Harries told a Downing Street press conference that people should not be viewing the coronavirus crisis as something that will blow over soon.

She said it will not be clear whether the ‘social distancing’ lockdown is working for another two or three weeks – after Easter – with deaths set to rise further.

But even if the draconian restrictions do succeed in ‘squashing’ the peak of the outbreak, reverting to a ‘normal way of life’ immediately would probably lead to a disastrous new spike in infections.

The news comes as Governmental advisers warn that even stricter social distancing measures could be under way if the staggering increase in figures doesn’t stop
