A patient has died of the Wuhan coronavirus in the Philippines...the first reported death from the virus outside of China.
The WHO, however, says this is not a locally-acquired case...meaning the patient - who was originally from the epicenter of the virus in Wuhan - was infected before arriving in the Philippines.
This, as the death toll from the coronavirus in China rose past the 300 mark...with more than 14,000 total infections.
