The number of people in China infected by a new SARS-like virus jumped to 291 on Tuesday, according to authorities.

 

So far nearly 80 new confirmed cases of the virus that has so far killed six people, with over 900 still under medical observation, said the National Health Commission.



 

It added that there are over 50 suspected cases under observation in 14 other provinces and regions across China, including the northeastern Jilin province, eastern Zhejiang and southern Hainan.

 

The confirmed cases are mostly in Hubei province where a seafood market in the capital city Wuhan has been identified as the epicentre of the outbreak.

 

The commission said there are five confirmed cases in Beijing, 14 in the southern province of Guangdong and two in Shanghai.



 

Countries across Asia have ramped up measures to block the spread of the new virus which can be transmitted between humans, raising fears of a massive outbreak during the upcoming major holiday travel rush.
