On the other hand, the death toll from China’s coronavirus epidemic soared to 304, as an increasing number of countries imposed extraordinary Chinese travel bans to combat the spread of the disease.
With Britain, Russia and Sweden among the countries confirming their first infections, the virus has now spread to more than two dozen nations, sending governments scurrying to limit their exposure.
