The World Health Organization said Wednesday there were now more new daily cases of the coronavirus outside China than inside the country, marking a shift in the outbreak.

"Yesterday, the number of new cases reported outside China exceeded the number of new cases in China for the first time," WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told diplomats in Geneva.

The UN health agency put the number of new cases in China Tuesday at 411 while those registered outside the country stood at 427.
