A woman wearing a mask walks past a quarantine notice about the outbreak of coronavirus in Wuhan, China at an arrival hall of Haneda airport in Tokyo, Japan, January 20, 2020.

The patient is in isolation at a San Diego hospital.

Tedros, the World Health Organization director, thanks Cambodia for welcoming the ship. At least five have already tested positive for the virus.

China's Hubei province expanded its criteria for identifying new coronavirus infections on Thursday, causing a dramatic spike in reported cases at the epicenter of the disease, as Beijing moved to purge provincial party officials amid criticism of their handling of the epidemic.

Zhang Jun told a United Nations meeting in NY that China's confidence has been further boosted by the decline of new confirmed cases in regions beyond Hubei province for eight consecutive days, and the significant rise in cured cases to more than 5,000.

Total cases in the province have now reached 48,206, the commission data showed. The death toll on the mainland rose to 1,113.

"As for the jump in cases, it is hard to comment, since we don't have data as to how many labs confirmed or those (that were) confirmed via radiology".

Both Australian and New Zealand have extensive trade ties with China, with trade in commodities, tourism and education especially vulnerable to disruption from the virus. Traffic remained light in Beijing and many people were still working at home.

Chinese authorities have changed the way they count infections from the virus - officially named Covid-19 - and the latest reports propelled the nationwide death toll to 1,355 and the infection count to almost 60,000.

Authorities in Japan have said 44 more people on quarantined cruise ship have tested positive for Covid-19.

The World Health Organization has declared the outbreak an worldwide health emergency.

The Mobile World Congress, a telecoms industry gathering that draws more than 100,000 visitors to Barcelona, has been canceled after an exodus of exhibitors.

The decision comes after dozens of tech companies and wireless carriers dropped out, with the latest cancelations by Nokia, Vodafone, Deutsche Telekom and Britain's BT on Wednesday.

The WHO has held a two-day meeting aimed at speeding up the development of tests, drugs and vaccines for the new virus, but experts have warned that treatments may be months away.

"South Korean health authorities also discussed about adopting clinical diagnosis last week".

Since the virus appeared in Wuhan in December, it has killed about 1,360 people and infected more than 60,000 across the globe.

Counting milder or asymptomatic cases could make the case fatality rate drop significantly, he added, but "even a case fatality rate of.2 or.5 could be catastrophic if this is highly contagious and spreads around the world". Nevertheless the authorities took vast measures to prevent the new virus from spreading and have been hospitalizing people who returned from China as a precaution.

Marinetraffic.com on Thursday listed the Westerdam as anchored at the port of Sihanoukville, where Holland America said in a statement Wednesday that the cruise would end. They were the two highest-profile officials to be axed since the outbreak.
