Across mainland China, there were 3,062 new confirmed infections on Sunday, bringing the total number so far to 40,171.

Ryan, speaking later to Reuters, said: "The daily number of new cases has been stable over a four-day period".

China's National Health Commission in a statement said that the warning has come as the country is facing a severe shortage of equipment, including suits, masks, and goggles, to protect medical workers from infection, Al Jazeera reported.

The vast majority of deaths caused by the virus have taken place in China, with just two deaths from coronavirus reported outside of the country.


An advance team for a World Health Organisation-led worldwide expert mission on the virus arrived in China late Monday, headed by Bruce Aylward. The death toll has reached 810 in China, as of Sunday.

On Sunday, the World Health Organisation (WHO) reported that 812 people had died from coronavirus in China, surpassing the deaths caused by SARS almost two decades ago.

The virus has impacted global companies operating in China, with Google and Apple closing their corporate offices and stores on the Chinese mainland.

Also on Monday, health authorities in the province of Hubei, where the disease first broke out in December, reported 2,618 cases overnight, as its total number of infections rose to nearly 30,000.


China has struggled to contain the current virus despite having placed some 56 million people under effective lockdown in Hubei and its provincial capital, Wuhan.

There is a risk for the coronavirus to be spread outside China by people who have never traveled to this country.

Zhong, who had previously predicted an earlier peak, said the forecast was based on modeling and developments in recent days, as well as government action.

In a press briefing on Saturday, February 8, 2020, in Geneva, the World Health Organization (WHO) reported that the number of new cases of the deadly coronavirus in the Hubei province of China, where the virus originated, appeared to be "stabilizing". Their condition is not said to be serious.
