The death toll of a coronavirus outbreak sweeping China has reached more than 560, with more than 28,000 people infected as of Wednesday.
A man in the Philippines became the first person to die of the virus outside of mainland China on Saturday, followed by a 39-year-old man in Hong Kong on Tuesday.
The virus has spread to every province and region in China as well at least 25 other countries. Both the death toll and number of infected patients in mainland China has exceeded that of the 2003 SARS outbreak there (though SARS killed more people in total).
