The Lebanon health ministry has announced the country's first coronavirus case.

Another center of infection has been the Diamond Princess cruise ship held under quarantine in Japan since February 3, with more than 630 cases accounting for the biggest infection cluster outside China.

Another 397 new cases were reported nationwide, down from almost 900 new cases officially reported Friday, bringing the total number of cases to over 76,000.

"We must not look back and regret that we failed to take advantage of the window of opportunity we have". The virus has also spread around the globe with more than 1,000 cases and several deaths worldwide.

Chinese media reported that Peng was 29 years old, which would place him among the youngest to die from COVID-19, the name of the new illness. That means there are nearly certainly blind spots where the virus is spreading in communities without detection.

"Although the total number of cases outside China remains relatively small, we're concerned about the number of cases with no clear epidemiological link, such as travel history to China or contact with a confirmed case", WHO Director-General Tedros Ghebreyesus said.

Hubei province, Ground Zero for the disease, had 411 of the newly confirmed cases and 115 deaths. A further 548 cases were confirmed, taking the total to 75,748. Numerous cases have been linked to a church in the city.

People in China mourned the death of another doctor who had succumbed to the disease Thursday, according to an announcement from the district in which he worked in Wuhan.

The coronavirus death count in Iran is now four in total, destressing officials at the World Health Organization. While the apparent impact of those measures has instilled hope in some that there is still time to stop circulation of the virus, skeptics warn that disease levels in China could rebound when the country eases its movement restrictions and allows people to return to their jobs.

"We were surprised, as you can imagine", Dr. Bonnie Henry, the provincial health officer, said about the case, which is the first in the province without a connection to China.

Authorities in northern Italy ordered the closure of schools, bars and other public spaces in 10 towns following a flurry of new coronavirus cases.

Modeling experts from Imperial College London examined recent COVID-19 developments outside of China that suggest that two-thirds of cases exported from China's mainland have gone undetected, which could have triggered yet-undetected local spread of the virus.
