Health and Social Care Correspondent

Dozens more people have died from the coronavirus in the Chinese city of Wuhan – with hospitals now struggling to get hold of essential supplies.

China has launched an urgent appeal for medical equipment, masks and protective goggles – as the number of deaths rose to 360, all but one of them in China.

As more countries impose stringent travel bans – Beijing has accused the United States of spreading ‘panic and fear’ instead of offering help.
