According to the reports death toll due to coronavirus (2019-nCoV) has increased to 106 while nearly 1,300 new cases have been confirmed.

The health commission in central Hubei province, the epicentre of the epidemic, said 24 more people had died from the virus and 1,291 more people were infected, raising the total number of confirmed cases to more than 4,000 across China.

US authorities are reportedly preparing to fly out its diplomats and other nationals from the country. Apart from China neighbouring countries such as Thailand, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, Nepal, Vietnam and Cambodia have also been affected.

A small number of cases have been reported in the US, Germany, France and Canada as well. An Air India flight which was due to leave on Monday evening to evacuate all Indians especially students stranded in Wuhan, did not take off due to a directive by the government.

Officials said that there was a review of measures to ascertain whether those on board are sanitised and if the aircraft itself will become a carrier of the virus. The World Health Organisation (WHO) on January 9 had first confirmed the outbreak of the new strain of the coronavirus.
