Centers for Disease Control and Prevention officials Monday revealed that the total number of confirmed cases of 2019 novel coronavirus in the United States has risen to 11.
The first death outside China from the new coronavirus was recorded Sunday in the Philippines, as countries around the world evacuated hundreds of their citizens from the infection zone and Chinese authorities completed a new, rapidly constructed 1,000-bed hospital for victims of the outbreak.
That puts the national total over 16,480, based on numbers previously issued by the central government.

Further, Hua said that "certain USA officials' words and actions are neither factual nor appropriate".
Fears over the continuing spread of coronavirus have also fueled resentment and discrimination.
