CNN also reported that cases have been confirmed in every province and territory in China except for Tibet.

William Schaffner, an adviser to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, was quoted by CNN to have said the infection is much more contagious than they originally thought.

“This is worse than we anticipated,” he said.

However, Zhang Jun, China’s ambassador to the United Nations (UN), has said the country has full capability and confidence in winning the battle against the epidemic.

“Putting the interests of the people first, China has taken rapid and strong measures, putting in place a nationwide prevention and control mechanism,” he said.

He added that “China has been working with the international community in the spirit of openness, transparency and scientific coordination. With a great sense of responsibility, China is sparing no effort in curbing the spread of disease and saving lives. Now is a crucial moment, and China has full capability and confidence in winning the battle against the epidemic.”
