The latest figures from China's National Health Commission showed 14,380 people are now infected with the virus across mainland China. As of Sunday morning the death toll had climbed to 304 and officials reported a massive spike in new cases, with more than 2,000 reported in the county on Saturday.
Outside China, cases of the coronavirus have been confirmed in 23 countries, including the U.S., U.K., Australia, Canada, Italy and Germany. Of the seven confirmed cases of 2019-nCoV in the U.S., all of the patients had traveled to China recently, except for a man in Chicago who contracted the virus from his wife after she visited China.
The virus' rapid spread around the globe in two months prompted the WHO to declare the outbreak a global emergency on Thursday.
Coronavirus Map: Tracking the Spread of the Outbreak
The Wuhan coronavirus has sickened more than 17,200 people in Asia, according to statements from health officials. Many other cases are suspected but not confirmed. As of Sunday evening, at least 362 people have died, all but one in China.
As these maps show, the disease has been detected in at least 23 other countries, most involving people who traveled from China.
Nine cases have been confirmed in the United States, including a 35-year-old man in Washington state, a couple in their 60s in Chicago and four people in California.
The outbreak is believed to have began in a seafood and poultry market in Wuhan, a city of 11 million people in central China. The virus is readily transmitted from person to person, scientists believe. But how lethal the virus is and and whether it can be contained is unclear.
