Number of deaths in China due to corona virus has risen sharply
The number of infected people rose by 409 and amounts to more than 77,000 cases. The vast majority of new deaths and infections have been recorded in the province of Hubei.
Experts from the World Health Organization (WHO) visited the closed Chinese city of Wuhan, the epicenter of the deadly virus outbreak, last weekend. It is the first time that the WHO has been in the city with more than 11 million people since the corona virus struck. They inspected two hospitals, among other things.
Non-residents of Wuhan may leave the city if they have no symptoms of the virus and have never been in contact with patients. The authorities announced this on Monday. The metropolis has been sealed off since January 23 and all transport in and out of the city has been stopped in an attempt to prevent new virus outbreaks.
