Coronavirus death toll up to 25 - Chinese state TV

Coronavirus outbreak killed 25 people until January 23 with 830 more individuals suffering virus-related health issues in mainland China, Chinese state television reported on Friday. The number of reported coronavirus cases rose to 844 globally.

The latest update led to canceling cancel Lunar New Year’s events in Beijing by local authorities.

Previously, Saudi Arabia, Vietnam and Singapore reported their first cases of coronavirus following the United Kingdom's announcement of the fifth suspected case of the infection.

However, the World Health Organization (WHO) decided on Thursday not to declare a global health emergency yet as it is "too early," adding that all cases outside China "are still being investigated."
