While the outbreak started around New Year's Day (12/31), it's picking up steam around the Asia-Pacific region especially since Mainland Chinese people tend to travel a lot.
For reference, the BNO Newsroom twitter has a special feed for any info on the coronavirus:
The WHO has page about COVID-19 and any other concerns people may have. I suggest peeps go to the Q&A page to check for official details.
I got new news from Japan. Ministry of Health officials announced that someone from Wuhan was found to be diagnosed with the virus and is quarantined.
Said person (from Japanese-based news) is from China and is living in Japan for a while now.
The Japanese health ministry says a new strain of coronavirus has been detected in a man who showed symptoms of pneumonia in Japan after visiting Wuhan, China. The inland Chinese city has been hit by a pneumonia outbreak that is likely caused by the virus.
The ministry says the man lives in Kanagawa Prefecture, near Tokyo.
This is the first confirmed case of a new coronavirus infection in Japan.
