  • China postpones key political meetings because of virus

Ninety-six deaths were reported from Hubei province and one from Guangdong province on Saturday besides 648 new confirmed cases of coronavirus infections, it said.

Xi has been wounded by the virus outbreak, but can minimize the damage by "moving aggressively to contain the damage and regain control by postponing" the meetings, said Steve Tsang, director of the China Institute at London's School of Oriental and African Studies.

Global stock markets dipped Monday morning as the coronavirus outbreak continued to grow outside of China, with new cases reported in Europe and the Middle East.

In the United States, CDC as of Monday reported a total of 53 confirmed cases of COVID-19, including 39 who'd been traveling or living outside the United States and were repatriated to the country and tested for the virus by CDC.

More than 50,000 people in about a dozen northern Italian towns have been told to stay home, and police set up checkpoints to enforce a blockade.

While health experts have expected limited outbreaks beyond China, the rapid acceleration of cases in Italy going from three on Friday to 220 on Monday is concerning, the World Health Organization (WHO) said in a statement.

Much of China is now in turmoil amid the deadly coronavirus outbreak. "Every person you talk to there has a sense of responsibility, they are mobilized like in a war against this virus".

Osterholm said the virus could be more widespread than reported in other countries, as well, because narrow testing protocols in some countries might mean there are patients with the virus who haven't been screened. Many are in its fourth-largest city, Daegu, which became more isolated with Asiana Airlines 020560.KS and Korean Air 003490.KS suspending flights there until next month. The death count continues to rise: At least 2,600 people have died since the start of the outbreak.

The WHO has declared it a global health emergency but has stopped short of calling it a global pandemic.

Even so, authorities have only reported 64 infections in Iran, an unusually small number that would mean an extremely high mortality rate.

Authorities should prepare hospital beds, isolation zones, respirators and oxygen for severe cases, he said.

The semi-official ILNA news agency quoted one local lawmaker in hard-hit Qom - a religious centre - who said 50 people had died there.

Several countries have taken measures to prevent arrivals from Iran.
