Almost all of those who died were in the Wuhan region, but officials have confirmed at least four deaths elsewhere.

The confirmation comes as authorities around the world grapple with the new type of virus, which originated in China but has since spread to Europe and North America. Further details about the case weren't released.

Five cases have been confirmed in Hong Kong where Chief Executive Carrie Lam declared the outbreak an emergency and stated that all primary and secondary schools would be closed for an additional two weeks after the new year holiday.

Cases have also been reported in South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, as well as the Chinese territories of Hong Kong and Macau.

There are three known cases of the coronavirus in France, the first European country to be affected by the outbreak. So far, no one has reported an illness.

"We are closely watching the situation in Canada and globally, and are meeting regularly with our counterparts across the country to make sure we are prepared if cases arise in B.C.", the pair said.

Additionally, 'travelers (to China) should be prepared for travel restrictions to be put into effect with little or no advance notice'.

The virus, believed to have originated late previous year in a seafood market in Wuhan that was illegally selling wildlife, has spread to cities including Beijing and Shanghai.

In a sign of the growing strain on Wuhan's health care system, the official Xinhua News Agency reported that the city planned to build a second makeshift hospital with about 1,000 beds.

One man in his 30s said some people had to queue for two days.

The French automaker PSA, which produces the Peugeot and Citroen brands, announced on Saturday that 38 employees from Wuhan will be expelled. The man is said to have travelled from China recently.

Japan has confirmed a third case of infection by China's coronavirus, the health ministry said on Saturday.

Health officials said there "is no immediate threat to the general public in Chicago".

Guidance from the CDC advises that people who have had casual contact with the patient are at "minimal risk" for developing infection.

The WHO says later on January 23the outbreak does not yet constitute a public emergency of worldwide concern and there is "no evidence" at the moment of the virus spreading between humans outside of China.

"We are steadily pushing forward the disease control and prevention".

On January 13, World Health Organization reports a case in Thailand, the first outside of China, of a woman who had arrived from Wuhan. The latest tally, from 29 provinces and cities across China, included 237 patients in serious condition.

In the heart of the outbreak where 11 million residents are already on lockdown, Wuhan banned most vehicle use, including private cars, in downtown areas starting Sunday, state media reported.

The patient, who was initially quarantined, recovered and was discharged.
