Fears rise as the deadly coronavirus continues to spread across the world.
Last week, the World Health Organisation said that the international community has launched a $675 million plan to prepare and respond to the coronavirus outbreak over the next few months.
Sunday was one of the deadliest days as the number of people killed by the virus increased by 97 in one day alone.
