Delta Air Lines and American Airlines suspended all flights between the United States and China.

The country's health commission said 85 new cases were cured and discharged yesterday, of which 49 were in Hubei province, where its capital city Wuhan has been locked down to stop the spread of the coronavirus.

From February 1, the Federal Government expanded the case definition for the novel coronavirus infection, which previously applied to people from the Hubei Province.

Almost 12,000 people have been infected globally, according to the World Health Organization, with all but 130 cases occurring in China. "Out of the 59 we got the results for 24, of which one is positive". "So we're awaiting the test result". "If this does not happen, then it's not fair", said Shailaja.

He also said that any US citizen who has traveled to China's Hubei province within the past two weeks will be subject to a mandatory quarantine of 14 days, the incubation period for the virus.

The 44-year-old man, from Wuhan, China, the center of the outbreak, died in hospital on Saturday after developing "severe pneumonia", the Philippine Department of Health said in a news release.

A top medical professional from the Indian Medical Association said there are possibilities of a few more people now under observation turning positive, but there is no need to panic. "It has been proved that coronavirus is less unsafe than even dengue fever, which Kerala witnessed in the past and hence just because a few more turn positive, no panic buttons need to be pressed", he said.
