The virus has already killed over 300 people in China and infected about 14,400 others, prompting authorities from various countries to evacuate their nationals from the affected areas. The victim, a 44-year-old Chinese man, was the companion of a 38-year-old Chinese woman who arrived in the Philippines on January 21 from Wuhan, the epicentre of the virus outbreak.

India's second positive case of the novel coronavirus has been reported in Kerala, reports suggest.

The medical college in Thrissur has been upgraded with a special isolation ward with full facilities to treat at least 24 patients at a time. Foreign nationals, other than immediate family members of US citizens who have traveled to China in the previous 14 days, will be denied entry into the country.

Four Indians could not board the second flight as they reported high temperatures.


After the case was confirmed, they went to Wuhan's Jinyintan Hospital where the team cared for them.

While the number of people who died in Wuhan, People's Republic of China due to the deadly Corona virus spreading around the world has increased to 305, Chinese officials are making great efforts to control the outbreak.

SARS, which is caused by a pathogen similar to the new coronavirus and also originated in China, killed 774 people worldwide - a lot of them in mainland China and Hong Kong.

The coronavirus has resulted in thousands of confirmed infections in more than 20 countries, with more than 99 percent of cases in China.


People in the city of 11 million people, which has been under quarantine for more than a week, have complained of waiting hours in line to see a doctor.

Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre said he is now recovering at home along with his wife, who also became ill with the virus. They are directly being flown to Wuhan. The co-passengers in both the flights will have to be monitored closely.

Travel restrictions: Many countries are advising citizens not to travel to China. "Though most of the people are voluntarily approaching health authorities, a few others are hesitant".

Earlier on Thursday, India reported its first coronavirus case, also from Kerala. Burials or transfer of the bodies are not allowed, the Commission said. All of the dead, and 1,921 of the new cases, were in Hubei province.


The hospital is in Pingfang District, Harbin city.
