SCARY: 126 CoronaVirus Cases Now Reported Outside of China Mainland

There are more than 14,300 confirmed cases around the world, and 305 people have died from the Wuhan Coronavirus. All but one of the deaths have been in mainland China.  

Philippines health officials announced Sunday that a 44-year-old Chinese man had died the day before from coronavirus after flying into the country from Wuhan, the Chinese city of 11 million at the center of the outbreak.

There are now more than 160 confirmed cases in 26 countries or territories outside of mainland China. And as the virus continues to spread around the world, governments are stepping up their responses.

The United States, Australia and New Zealand have all announced that they will not allow foreign nationals who have traveled from or transited through China to enter. All three countries will continue to allow citizens who have visited China to enter, although they will need to be quarantined.

Some governments have also raised their travel advisory warnings. The US, for instance, has labeled China a “do not travel” destination — the highest possible warning.

A number of countries have evacuated their citizens from Wuhan. The US evacuated 195 Americans, who are under a 14-day quarantine on an air force base in California.
