The province confirmed 444 total cases of the coronavirus, which emerged in its capital Wuhan, as of 8 pm local time (1200 GMT). The previously reported death toll in China was nine, all in Hubei province.

Wuhan has urged people to stay away, cancelling a major Lunar New Year event, as it strives to contain a disease that has spread across the country.

The disease is spreading just as hundreds of millions of people are travelling in packed trains, planes and buses across China to gather with friends and family for the Lunar New Year holiday, which starts on Friday.
