"China locked down five cities at the hub of a new coronavirus outbreak that has killed 18 people and infected at least 634, as health authorities around the world took action to prevent a global pandemic.
Health officials fear the transmission rate will accelerate as hundreds of millions of Chinese travel at home and abroad during week-long holidays for the Lunar New Year, which begins on Saturday.
Gilead Sciences Inc said it was assessing whether its experimental Ebola treatment could be used to treat coronavirus infection.
"Gilead is in active discussions with researchers and clinicians in the United States and China regarding the ongoing Wuhan coronavirus outbreak and the potential use of remdesivir as an investigational treatment," a company spokesman said in an emailed statement.
The company said that there was no antiviral data on the drug that showed activity against the coronavirus that was identified in the central Chinese city of Wuhan. But testing in animals had shown that the drug was effective against the SARS coronavirus. "
