The death toll from coronavirus continues to soar, now topping 900 and overtaking the global death toll from the deadly SARS outbreak in 2002 and 2003. In Wuhan, the epicenter of the disease, the first death of a U.S. citizen was recorded last week. Sixty new cases were identified on a cruise ship docked in Yokohama, Japan, bringing the total number of confirmed cases on board to 135. Around 3,700 people have been quarantined aboard the ship since last Monday.
