Coronavirus Cases Declining In China

China reported 40 new cases of the coronavirus on Monday, its lowest number since its health commission began publishing nationwide data on 20 January.

Of the 40 cases, 36 were from the virus epicentre of Wuhan – while the remaining four were cases imported from Iran.

But one Chinese official warned that the country had to “stay cautious” – adding that the country “should not reduce the vigilance against the epidemic”.
