China battles coronavirus outbreak
On Wednesday, the death toll from new coronavirus in China increased to 132, with nearly 1,500 new cases registered. The rapidly growing virus is putting pressure on the country to control the disease, while U.S. officials said the White House was considering whether to suspend flights to the country.
On Wednesday, the authorities said that the number of confirmed cases across the country climbed to 5,974, while the death toll nationwide rose by 26.
According to details, many countries are trying to evacuate their citizens from Wuhan, the city in Hubei at the center of the epidemic.
The origin of the outbreak is in Wuhan’s central Chinese city, where authorities have stepped up fever checks at the airport, train stations, and highways, while a big Lunar New Year celebration has been cancelled, drawing hundreds of thousands of people.
