Coronavirus health scare: 300 plus dead; first fatality outside China confirmed
 Coronavirus health scare: 300 plus dead; first fatality outside China confirmed

The public health emergency associated with the killer coronavirus that has already spread to over a dozen countries has raised global alarms, with the number of confirmed deaths inside China passing the 300 mark, and the first fatality from the outbreak outside China reported in the Philippines.

Health authorities in Chinaís central Province of Hubei, the epicenter of the epidemic, reported 45 new fatalities on Sunday.

There was also a significant increase in confirmed infections in the province where 1,921 new cases were recorded.

This brings the national total to more than 13,700, based on numbers previously issued by the government in Beijing.

The never-before-seen virus was first reported in December in a seafood and poultry market in the provincial capital of Wuhan, with a population of 11 million people.

The infection began to spread quickly beyond the province and crossed the countryís borders soon, with cases being detected in the United States, Canada, Australia, and several south Asian countries.

First death outside China reported in Philippines

The Philippines reported its fist death outside China in the capital Manila on Sunday, according to Rabindra Abeyasinghe, the representative of World Health Organization (WHO) to the country.

Abeyasinghe noted that the case was a locally acquired case, since the patient had traveled to the Philippines from Chinaís Wuhan, the hardest hit city, in January.

According to Philippinesí Health Secretary Francisco Duque, the patient - a 44-year-old Chinese man - who died in a Manila hospital, arrived in the Philippines with a Chinese woman who was also diagnosed with the virus infection. She is recovering in hospital.

The news of the death in the Philippines broke shortly after Manila announced it would immediately halt the arrivals of any foreign travelers from China.

íNo visitors from Chinaí

Many states around the world have put in place border closures to arrivals from China.

The US and Australia say foreigners, who have recently visited China, will not be allowed to enter.

New Zealand also announced it would ban all foreign nationals arriving from mainland China as of Monday, for a period of 14 days.

Authorities have also raised travel advice to New Zealanders for all of mainland China to "Do not travel," the highest level.

New Zealandís Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said in a statement that "there are still a range of unknowns in the way the virus is being transmitted; we should take a precautionary approach."

Vietnam bans all flights to and from China

Vietnam has also declared a public health emergency over the virus outbreak, saying it would halt all flights to and from China.

It would also stop issuing visas for foreign visitors who had been in China in the past two weeks.

Japan, Pakistan and Italy have earlier announced similar travel restrictions.

Global health officials have, however, advised against such measures.

The World Health Organization warned on Friday that such restrictions "can cause more harm than good by hindering info-sharing, medical supply chains and harming economies."

Foreign governments evacuating citizens from China

Meanwhile, several countries are evacuating their citizens from Hubei.

Saudi Arabiaí media reported Sunday that authorities had evacuated 10 students from Wuhan.

Chinese officials also approved the special flight that flew the students to the kingdom, the report said.

The Russian military will begin evacuating Russians from the affected regions in China, Russian media reported.

Indonesia and Turkey also sent planes to transfer their citizens home from Hubei.

South Korea, India and Bangladesh have already flown hundreds of their citizens home from Wuhan.
