Summary:
7 Chinese cities, around 23 million people, effectively under quarantine

Multiple cases across the world – from Scotland to Singapore and USA

634 Infected (according to Chinese officials)

18 Dead (following 1st death outside Wuhan)

WHO says “not the time to declare a global health emergency”

“Make no mistake: This is an emergency in China,” Tedros said. “But it has not yet become a global health emergency. It may yet become one.”

Update (1325ET): The World Health Organization, after a second day of meetings, have decided AGAINST declaring an international virus alarm. The panel was reportedly split on the decision and may revise the decision but for now states that “now is not the time” to declare an emergency.

“Make no mistake: This is an emergency in China,” WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said. “But it has not yet become a global health emergency. It may yet become one.”
