China coronavirus toll rises to 54 dead, more than 300 new cases.

The latest numbers from Hubei, the epicentre of the contagion, would put the nationwide total of confirmed infections at 1,610, based on figures previously released by the central government.

President Xi Jinping warned that China faced a "grave situation" as authorities raced to contain a respiratory illness that has caused the widespread abandonment of Lunar New Year celebrations nationwide and overwhelmed health facilities in Hubei.

The contagion remained centred on the Hubei provincial capital of Wuhan, which accounted for seven of the new deaths and 46 of the new confirmed cases, said the Hubei Health Commission.

In Canada, the first confirmed case of the 2019-nCoV coronavirus was registered in a resident who returned from the central Chinese city of Wuhan, the epicenter of the outbreak of a viral disease, Reuters reports.
