"Wuhan provides hope for the rest of the world that even the most severe situation can be turned around," the WHO chief said.

"Of course we must exercise caution.

The situation can be worse, but the experience of cities and countries that have pushed back this virus give hope and courage to the rest of the world." According to a Reuters tally, there were over 12,000 coronavirus cases and over 200 deaths linked to coronavirus in the United States as of early Friday afternoon.

Coronavirus Resurgence In Beijing

Beijing is seeing a surge in coronavirus cases. The Chinese capital has reported its second consecutive day of record new numbers of COVID-19 cases. The recent outbreak has been traced to Xinfadi, a wholesale food market that accounts for 80% of Beijing’s farm produce. Xinfadi is a complex that is 20 times larger than the seafood market in Wuhan where the virus originated. The market has been shuttered and tens of thousands of nearby residents are being tested for the virus.
