A man has died from the Coronavirus in the Philippines, marking the first reported death tied to the virus outside of China.
The World Health Organisation said the man appeared to have been infected before arriving in the Philippines.
His death was confirmed shortly after the country halted the arrivals of foreign travelers from China.
So far, more than three hundred people have died and fourteen thousand others infected in the outbreak.
As the overall death toll passed 300, a quarantine is being expanded in Wuhan, the central Chinese city where the coronavirus began.

China meets its promise to build a new coronavirus hospital within 10 days.
A 44-year-old man in the Philippines has died of the coronavirus, health officials said on Sunday, making him the first known death outside China. The man, a resident of Wuhan, China, the epicenter of the virus, died on Saturday after developing what officials called “severe pneumonia.”
“This is the first known death of someone with 2019-nCoV outside of China,” the World Health Organization’s office in the Philippines said in a statement, using the technical shorthand for the coronavirus.
Philippines health officials said the man had arrived in the country on Jan. 21 with a 38-year-old woman who remains under observation.
Here’s what early research says about how the pathogen behaves and the factors that will determine whether it can be contained.
“In his last few days, the patient was stable and showed signs of improvement,” said the health secretary, Francisco Duque III. “However, the condition of the patient deteriorated within his last 24 hours, resulting in his demise.”
Hours before the death was announced, the Philippines said it was temporarily barring non-Filipino travelers arriving from mainland China, Hong Kong and Macau.
