Wuhan, the Chinese city where the outbreak is centered, further tightened its already-strict quarantine on residents, saying people won’t be allowed to leave their neighborhoods except to seek medical care, help with medical and quarantine work, or assist in vital functions.

Egypt confirmed its first case of the virus. Health authorities in China told people returning to Beijing to stay home for two weeks of observation, according to a report by Beijing Daily.
