Philippines health officials announced Sunday that a 44-year-old Chinese man had died the day before from coronavirus after flying into the country from Wuhan, the Chinese city of 11 million at the center of the outbreak.
There are more than 14,300 confirmed cases around the world, and 305 people have died. All but one of the deaths have been in mainland China.
There are now more than 160 confirmed cases in 26 countries or territories outside of mainland China.
Germany confirmed its 10th case on Sunday, and there were also new cases reported South Korea, Vietnam, Malaysia, Macao and Hong Kong.
And as the virus continues to spread around the world, governments are stepping up their responses.
A second French carried European citizens from Wuhan to Europe, where they were going to be placed in quarantine. French, Belgian, Dutch, Danish, British Czech and Slovak citizens were on board the plane which was chartered by France, and was part of the European Crisis Management Mechanism.
US Defense Secretary Mark Esper has also approved a request to provide military housing for up to 1,000 people who may need to be quarantined after arriving in the US from overseas travel, the Pentagon said in a statement.
Although the outbreak has spread to every province and region of China, the outbreak remains worst in Hubei, where more than 7,100 have been diagnosed with coronavirus and 249 people have died.
Construction of the first of two new medical facilities in the city of Wuhan that were commissioned to provide 2,600 extra beds for patients affected by the outbreak has been completed, according to state media CCTV.
CCTV reported that construction finished Saturday morning on the Huoshenshan Hospital and that control was handed to the military, which will begin operations Monday. The second facility, Leishenshan Hospital, in Wuhan is due to be complete February 5, according to state media.
All major cities in Hubei province were under lockdown, affecting more than 62 million people.
Huanggang — a city of 7.5 million in Hubei province — is only allowing one representative from each household to leave their home every other day to go out for grocery shopping in order to minimize the flow of people in the city.
The unprecedented decision to shut down entire cities comes as the country faces a shortage of medical supplies. Chinese Premier Li Keqiang has even asked the European Union to help China procure medical supplies, according to a Chinese government statement.
