The ministry indicated that it had ordered last week that all of its consular officers and their families leave Wuhan.

The statement added that the ability of the US administration “to provide emergency services to American citizens in Hubei Province is limited”.

CBS news also reported minutes ago that 106 people have died in China from the new virus, officially dubbed “2019 novel coronavirus” (2019-nCoV). More than 4,500 others have been infected in more than a dozen countries, including five confirmed cases in the United States. More than 60 additional people in the U.S. were being tested for the disease.

Public health officials from the U.S. and China have warned people to expect many more infections, and there have been unconfirmed claims from anonymous health workers in China that many thousands more than their government is acknowledging could already be infected.
