The Coronavirus outbreak that started from the large capital city of Hubei province, China, has so far killed 362 (three hundred and sixty-two) persons, with 17,386 (seventeen thousand, three hundred and eighty-six) reported cases already.


According to new reports from CNN, the Wuhan City Coronavirus has claimed more than 360 lives since the outbreak started in China.

The total number of deaths recorded in China stands at 361, with another one recorded in the Philippines, bringing it to a total of 362 deaths so far.

However, the total number of cases already recorded are now 17,386, with the most still recorded in Mainland China.

China alone has a record of 17,205 (seventeen thousand, two hundred and five) and Japan have the second most reports at just 20 (twenty) cases.


The World Health Organization (WHO) on the 30th of January, 2020, declared Coronavirus a global emergency when the death toll crossed 200.

China, where the spread started from, has a stronger health care system than most of the other countries that the virus could potentially get to, prompting the WHO to make the declaration.

The first case of the Coronavirus in Africa was recorded in Botswana when a man entering the country from China on an Ethiopian Airways flight displayed symptoms of the virus.
