  • Coronavirus spreads to new countries

Asian shares fell on Wednesday as the US warning to Americans to prepare for a likely coronavirus pandemic jolted Wall Street again and pushed yields on safe-haven Treasuries to record lows.

"It's not a question of if".

World Health Organisation (WHO) announced that the epidemic had peaked at its epicenter in China, where it has killed more than 2,600 people and infected over 77,000 others.

"We should not be too eager to declare a pandemic without a careful and clear-minded analysis of the facts", Tedros said in remarks to Geneva-based diplomats. "It may also signal that we can no longer contain the virus, which is not true".

President Hassan Rouhani went on to acknowledge that it may take one, two or three weeks to get control of the virus in Iran, linked to most of the over 210 confirmed cases of the virus now spread across the Mideast.

"Coronavirus must not be turned into a weapon for our enemies to halt work and production in our country", Rouhani said, according to a transcript posted to the Iranian presidency's website.

"Think the virus is going to show up tomorrow", Dr. Bruce Aylward, head of the joint WHO-Chinese mission on the outbreak, told reporters on return to Geneva.

"This virus will show up", he warned at a briefing Tuesday.

"If you don't think that way, you're not going to be ready", he said, saying it was an "incredibly interconnected world".

"What was a rapidly-escalating outbreak has plateaued and then come down faster than one would have expected if we had looked at the natural dynamics of an outbreak like this".

Algeria's health ministry says an Italian man who arrived in the country from Milan on February 17 was placed under observation after showing symptoms and was then confirmed to have COVID-19.

The death toll rose to 15 on Tuesday as three more people succumbed to the disease - officially known as COVID-19.

The National Health Commission also reported a drop in new infections to 406, with only five outside Hubei - a figure that will boost confidence that the rest of the country is containing the epidemic.

On a USA military base in Daegu, the centre of infections in South Korea, officials said a 61-year-old widow of a US service member had also been infected.

Italy, the hardest hit country in Europe, has more than 370 cases and 12 deaths. "The economy was already fragile before the outbreak and vulnerable to anything that did not stick to script. COVID-19 is way off script", the agency said.

Japan has 164 virus cases and 691 on a quarantined cruise ship docked south of Tokyo.

It said the assistance has been provided in the wake the coronavirus outbreak in China and a request by the country to provide supplies such as masks and medical equipment. Cases linked to Iran have been reported across the region.

Kuwait said on Wednesday there were two new coronavirus cases in the country, among people returning from Iran.

A dramatic uptick in coronavirus cases outside of China this week has sparked new fears about the outbreak's potential to become a pandemic.

Spain reported its first case on the mainland, a woman from Barcelona who had also visited northern Italy, while a four-star hotel on Tenerife was in lockdown after a couple tested positive there.

Croatia and Austria reported their first cases of the virus.

A 61-year-old man from Sao Paolo who recently returned from Italy is being tested for coronavirus, Brazil's health ministry said in a statement on Tuesday. Meanwhile, Italy - which has reported 10 deaths and more than 300 cases - has locked down 11 towns and ordered Serie A football games to be played to empty stadiums.
