Coronavirus death toll in China crosses 1,000

Ghebreyesus earlier issued a new "grave" warning about the coronavirus, as authorities in Hong Kong evacuate 100 people from an apartment block amid fears the virus could spread through drainage pipes.

On Monday afternoon, Chinese state media Xinhua News Agency published a story about Xi's visit to a hospital and street in Beijing's largest suburb, Chaoyang District, known as the home to the country's most expensive green space, which is surrounded by high-end shopping malls and mansions.

Apart from testing countries' healthcare systems, the WHO said the outbreak would also gauge what it called financial solidarity to see whether the world would invest more in keeping the virus at bay.

The death toll in China due to the novel coronavirus epidemic has crossed 1,000, while the confirmed cases have gone over 42,000, health officials announced on Tuesday.

At least 60 million people in central China are in a government-ordered lockdown aimed at halting the spread of the virus and health authorities around the world are racing to track down the contacts of infected people and isolate confirmed cases.

No specific treatment or vaccine against the virus exists, and World Health Organization has repeatedly urged countries to share data in order to further research into the disease.

"That is especially true in relation to sharing of samples and sequences".

"We hope that one of the outcomes of this meeting will be an agreed roadmap for research around which researchers and donors will align", Tedros said.

But in recent years it has been frozen out as Beijing takes an increasingly combative stance towards democratic Taiwan, which it considers its own territory.

"WHO is working to keep laboratories with the capacity to rapidly diagnose cases".

"We welcome worldwide experts including those from the United States to take part in the joint expert team", Mi said, adding that appropriate arrangements for the team would be made after thorough consultation and communication.

Ultimately, however, scientists may end up in the same situation they were during the 2002-2003 outbreak of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) - it died out before a vaccine could be fully developed.

A close cousin of COVID-19, SARS spread around the world and killed almost 800.
