Coronavirus Alert

The global death toll from the ongoing coronavirus outbreak has reached 719 after another 81 fatalities were recorded in China.

The latest deaths came in Hubei province, where Wuhan – the city where the infection was first reported – is located.

Chinese health authorities have also confirmed 2,841 new cases of the SARS-like illness in Hubei, taking the total number there up to 24,953.

Hubei is home to the vast majority of global deaths and cases, with 699 of the 719 total fatalities.

Among them is Dr Li Wenliang, a 34-year-old opthalmologist who died in Wuhan having tried to warn others about the outbreak back in December.

More than 31,000 people are infected around the world, including three in the UK.

They are a man believed to have caught the virus in Singapore who is being treated at St Thomas’ Hospital in London, and two people who were diagnosed in York and are now at a specialist hospital unit in Newcastle.

Other British cases have been reported abroad, including a a passenger on the stranded Diamond Princess cruise ship which has been quarantined off the coast of Japan.

Meanwhile, Sky News understands British citizens still waiting to be evacuated from Wuhan will be quarantined at a facility in Milton Keynes when they are finally flown back to the UK on Sunday.
