China’s National Health Commission confirmed more than 500 cases of the deadly coronavirus, which causes pneumonia, and 17 fatalities. However, prompt actions by China to contain the respiratory virus, including cutting off travel into and out of the city of Wuhan, where coronavirus originated, provided some comfort that the outbreak will be contained and not result in a pandemic that may affect global economic growth. Officials at the World Health Organization said the emergency committee is split on whether to declare the new coronavirus a public health emergency of international concern.
