  • The death toll from the coronavirus outbreak has risen to 170, and a confirmed case in Tibet means it has reached every region in mainland China.

    Chinese health authorities said there were 7,711 confirmed cases in the country as of 29 January.

    Infections have also spread to at least 15 other countries.

    The World Health Organization (WHO) will meet on Thursday to again consider whether the virus constitutes a global health emergency.

    "In the last few days the progress of the virus, especially in some countries, especially human-to-human transmission, worries us," WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said on Wednesday.
