Alarm mounts as coronavirus spreads - EU-US trade dispute addressed in Davos
Officials from the World Health Organization have said the number of new coronavirus cases in China fell for the first time since the outbreak began. But they warned the virus may not yet have peaked.
Hundreds of US nationals landed in California after being evacuated from China's Wuhan due to the coronavirus. The WHO has called for $675 million (€613 million) in donations from UN countries to fight the outbreak.
The WHO declared an international emergency over the "unprecedented outbreak" in China, but said they were confident in China's capacity to control it. Meanwhile, airlines were halting flights to the country.
The EU has set up "the building blocks of a European defense union," EU Commission chief Ursula von der Leyen has said in Davos. She also hailed a "European open science cloud" aimed to boost research in the bloc.
