Of the most recent deaths, 103 were in the province of Hubei, including 67 in the provincial capital of Wuhan. The virus is believed to have originated there in a seafood market that sold wild animals as well.
Chinese President Xi Jinping visited health facilities in Beijing and has since removed 2 senior health officials from their positions namely; Zhang Jin who was party secretary of the health commission for Hubei and Ling Yingzi who was director of the Hubei Provincial Health Commission.
Two deaths have been recorded outside of mainland China, one in Hong Kong and one in the Philippines. A minimum of 25 countries have reported cases and many others have begun plans to evacuate their citizens from Hubei and other parts of China.
