Philippines reports first virus death outside China: WHO

The Philippines has reported the first death outside China from the coronavirus that has killed over 300 and spread to other countries, the World Health Organization said Sunday. The fatality is a 44-year-old Chinese man from the city of Wuhan, where the virus was first detected, and appears to have been infected before arriving in the Philippines.

REFILE-Taiwan scrambles diplomats to keep flights going amid China virus inclusion       

Taiwan is asking its diplomats to talk to governments where Taiwanese airlines fly to ensure more flights are not cut off due to the island's inclusion by the World Health Organization as part of China due to the coronavirus outbreak. Taiwan has only reported 10 cases, compared to more than 14,000 in China, but as the WHO considers self-ruled Taiwan part of China, it has included it in its advice that China is "very high risk". Taiwan is not a member of the WHO due to Chinese objections.
