In a rare public appearance, China's President Xi Jinping has visited health staff in Beijing treating patients infected with the coronavirus. We also hear about how transmissible the virus may become outside of China. The number of people killed by the new coronavirus rose by 97 on Sunday, the highest number of casualties in a day. The total number of deaths in China is now 908 - but the number of newly-infected people per day has stabilised. Across China, 40,171 people are infected while 187,518 are under medical observation. Meanwhile, 60 more people have tested positive on a cruise ship quarantined in Japan - meaning 130 out of 3,700 passengers have caught the virus.
