The death toll in China due to coronavirus almost doubled in a day. The World Health Organization's (WHO) representative on January 23 said, "Trying to contain a city of 11 million people is new to science, it has not been tried before as a public health measure, so we cannot at this stage say it will or it will not work. If this is happening we will note carefully to what extent it is maintained (and) how long it can take."
