China has been working very hard to contain the Coronavirus. The United States greatly appreciates their efforts and transparency. It will all work out well. In particular, on behalf of the American People, I want to thank President Xi!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 24, 2020

15 Coronavirus related deaths were reported in the central-China province of Hubei. So far patients with the virus were reported in France, Mexico, and the US.
More than a dozen pharmacies in Manhattan's Chinatown had run out of face masks or only had a few left on Friday, Reuters reported.
Pharmacists said hundreds of locals had rushed to buy masks for protection from the newly discovered coronavirus that has killed 26 people in China and infected at least 800 others, including a case in Chicago and another near Seattle.
The virus was reported in France, Austrlia, Mexico, and Japan.
