Latest updates from the World Health Organization indicates that the coronavirus as of 6am Geneva time on February 5, 2020; had affected 24,363 people in China, and 490 deaths.

“Outside China there are 191 #2019nCoV cases in 24 countries & one death, in the Philippines. Of those, 31 cases are in people with no travel history to China but all are close contacts of a confirmed case or of someone from Wuhan.

“So far, 99% of the #2019nCoV cases are in #China, and 80% of cases in China are from Hubei province. The relatively small number of cases outside China gives us a window of opportunity to prevent this outbreak from becoming a broader global crisis,” he stressed.
