Monday, 17 February 2020 10:32 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

Chinese health officials said Sunday that the number of new cases of the coronavirus has slowed for the third consecutive day.

The health commission confirmed 1,843 new cases, representing a drop from higher numbers of new cases in recent days.  Over the previous two days, China had reported more than 7,500 new infections.

The death toll from the virus in mainland China hit 1,665, with 142 deaths reported Sunday.

National Heath Commission spokesman Mi Feng said Sunday that the percentage of "severe" cases was dropping, and that the trends showed that China was succeeding in controlling the outbreak.

But the World Health Organization warned Sunday that it will be "impossible to predict which direction this epidemic will take." Speaking from the Munich Security Conference, WHO chief Adhanom Ghebreyesus called on governments to work with WHO to adequately inform the public of the dangers of the virus without causing hysteria.
