  • China sees rise in new virus cases, death toll rises by 105

Health authorities in China's Hubei Province say 100 more people died from the new coronavirus on Sunday, bringing the death toll in mainland China to 1,765.

A total of 10,844 people had been discharged from hospital after recovery.

However, it also opened Mr Xi up to criticism over why the public was not alerted sooner.

But during a speech Xi delivered February 3, which was published by state media on Saturday, he said he gave instructions on fighting the virus as early as January 7.

The number of people infected with the new coronavirus in China passed 70,000 on Monday as worldwide experts began meetings with their Chinese counterparts on how to tackle an epidemic that has caused global concern.

Taiwan's Central News Agency reported that the person who died was a male in his 60s living in central Taiwan.

Cruise ship firm Holland America Line said it was working with governments and health experts to track passengers who disembarked from its Westerdam ship docked in Cambodia after an American woman tested positive for coronavirus in Malaysia.

Speaking before the latest figures were released Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said the drop in new cases showed "that overall the epidemic is controllable".

Private vehicles that aren't used for virus-related activities will be temporarily barred in urban areas, while public places that aren't providing essential service should be closed, the Hubei government said in a statement on its website.

Experts from the WHO are also expected in Beijing on Sunday to join Chinese health authorities in containing the virus, which has spread to several other countries forcing them to temporarily stop tourist arrivals from China.

Japan now has 413 confirmed cases, including 355 from a cruise ship, and one death from the virus.

Xi's role was muted in the early days of the epidemic, which has grown into one of the biggest political challenges of his seven-year tenure.

Thailand developed the One Health National Strategic Plan for Emerging Infectious Disease in response to the H1N1 pandemic that first emerged in 2009, and a year ago the country was ranked sixth in the world in terms of preparedness for a pandemic by the Global Health Security Index.

Authorities in Hubei and Wuhan faced public fury over their initial handling of the epidemic.

In an apparent response to the outrage, the ruling Communist Party's top officials in Hubei and Wuhan were axed and replaced last week.

"Our hope is there is a reconsideration of the virus and disease naming and another effort made to reconcile the two, so they are more similar and more descriptive of what this virus is doing to humans and how it fits into coronavirus virology", Osterholm said last week to Science Magazine.

In total, Hubei recorded more than 56,000 cases of the respiratory illness caused by the virus.

Global worries about its spread remain high and the epidemic s reach was highlighted by the United States announcing that more than three dozen Americans from a cruise ship quarantined off Japan were infected. People with symptoms were banned from the flights.

The notice warns there will be legal consequences for those who don't comply with the 14-day quarantine.

The letter added that "passengers and crew members (on board the Diamond Princess) are at high risk of exposure" to the virus and the government was therefore "chartering these flights to minimize the risks to your health going forward".
