A man in the Philippines has become the first person to die from the Coronavirus, away from China.
He was 44, and had arrived in the country from the affected city of Wuhan 12 days ago.
A 38-year-old woman, who travelled to the Philippines with the man and is from Wuhan, also tested positive for the virus and remains in hospital isolation in Manila.
There have been more than 300 fatalities in China so far.
It comes as health officials here have said there are still no confirmed cases of coronavirus in Ireland.
Meanwhile, six officials in the city of Huanggang, neighbouring Wuhan, have been fired over "poor performance" in handling the outbreak, the official Xinhua News Agency reported.
The death in the Philippines comes as China is facing mounting isolation in the face of increasing travel restrictions and flight suspensions, as the number of dead from the coronavirus outbreak rose to 305.
The epidemic has led to countries including the UK and the US evacuating their citizens from China, and risks worsening a slowdown in growth in the world's second-largest economy.
Further restrictions have come as the number of confirmed cases in China reached 14,380, state television said.
More than 130 cases have been reported across at least 25 other countries including the US, Russia, France, Australia, and the United Arab Emirates.
