The pace of new infections in Hubei Province, center of the coronavirus outbreak, may be stabilizing as the death toll nears the total from SARS.

An American and a Japanese man suspected of getting the virus died in Wuhan this week, officials said. The disease is spreading, with five Britons sharing an Alps chalet confirmed with cases, and two new cases on a Princess Cruise ship in Japan -- largest center of infections outside China.
