See a doctor immediately if you develop fever and cough and have recently traveled to China or have been in close contact with someone who has a confirmed case of novel coronavirus.

China's National Health Commission confirmed Monday that it had recorded 57 new fatalities, marking the largest daily increase in the death toll since the virus first began spreading in mainland China's Wuhan some time between December 12 and December 29.

Late Sunday, the Global Times - a Chinese state tabloid - reported that the number of novel coronavirus deaths on the country's mainland had hit 361, which it says was more than the total number of 349 caused by SARS nearly 2 decades ago.

Hubei's provincial capital of Wuhan, where the virus is thought to have originated, reported 41 new deaths.

Similar to the Sars pathogen, coronavirus emerged in the Chinese city of Wuhan a year ago and has been declared a global health emergency by the World Health Organization.

"The American public can be assured: The full weight of the USA government is working to safeguard the health and safety of the American people", he said. An exemption is being made for Australian citizens, permanent residents, immediate family members, or any aircrew member previously using appropriate protective equipment-persons in these categories will be quarantined for 14 days upon their arrival.

Several countries have also placed a temporary travel ban on Chinese nationals and those foreigners, who recently traveled to China.


American travelers who have been to China's Hubei province in the last 14 days will be subject to a quarantine of up to two weeks when they return to the U.S. This is the first federal quarantine in more than 50 years.

Foreign Ministry spokesperson Han Chunying took questions during an online press conference from global media in regards to the coronavirus and rebuked the U.S.'s response to the outbreak, claiming they had "overreacted", according to the translated transcript.

The number of deaths in China has now exceeded the total Chinese toll from the 2002-'03 outbreak of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome, or SARS.

Trump's national security adviser, Robert O'Brien, in a separate interview, said China had been more open about the coronavirus than it has been in previous crises but had not yet accepted USA offers of assistance.


The experimental antiviral drug, Remdesivir to be tested in field trials is developed by US-based Gilead Sciences, is aimed at treating infectious diseases such Ebola and SARS, South China Morning Post reported.

"But in the meantime, some countries, the USA in particular, have inappropriately overreacted, which certainly runs counter to World Health Organization advice".

The U.S. declared a public health emergency due to the new type of coronavirus epidemic.
