N. Korea closes railway to Russia, as virus death toll rises to 361

North Korea restricted its railway movement with Russia on the rising concerns over the Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV). According to the TASS news agency, railways were closed indefinitely as the country waits to see how the virus progresses. Pyongyang's decision was made after the railway with China was already suspended, making Russia the last non-Korean country its railway traveled directly to.

In the meantime, Chinese health officials revealed the country's death toll rose to 361, with the number of confirmed cases increasing to 17,205, while the number of patients in critical condition stands at 2,296.
