The Wuhan coronavirus has killed more people inside mainland China than the coronavirus responsible for the SARS outbreak in 2003.
China's National Health Commission (NHC) reported the Wuhan outbreak was responsible for 361 deaths by the end of day Sunday. SARS killed 349 people in mainland China, according to the NHC.
SARS was responsible for the deaths of 774 people worldwide. To date, only one person has been killed outside mainland China from the Wuhan coronavirus.

A husband and wife, both aged 57, have been diagnosed with Wuhan coronavirus in California's San Benito County, according to a statement from local officials.
This raises the number of confirmed cases in California to six, and 11 in the United States.
The husband recently traveled from the central Chinese city of Wuhan, epicenter of the outbreak. However the wife did not -- a case of person-to-person transmission.
The San Benito County Public Health Services has provided guidance to the couple for home isolation and is closely monitoring their medical condition, according to the statement. Neither patient is in hospital.
These are the states where the coronavirus has been confirmed:
Arizona: 1 case
California: 6 cases
Illinois: 2 cases
Massachusetts: 1 case
Washington: 1 case
Thousands of Hong Kong public medical staff voted to go on a five-day strike today if the city's government does not fully close the border with mainland China.
Hong Kong is a semiautonomous city and operates its own immigration system separate from Beijing. The city's leader, Carrie Lam, announced last week the city would temporarily close some of its border crossings to the mainland.
But some members of the medical community want the government to do more, and thousands of medical staff are calling on the HKSAR government to ban all visitors from mainland China to prevent the spread of the Wuhan coronavirus to Hong Kong.
The Hospital Authority Employees Alliance, which has 13,000 members, voted in favor of a strike Saturday. The union said however that the majority of frontline staff will not take part in the strike in order to keep serving the public, but support and backroom staff will walk out.
Hong Kong's government said in a statement Sunday it will meet with members of the union who voted to strike.
Australia and New Zealand have both placed temporary travel bans on visitors coming from China in response to the spread of the Wuhan coronavirus.
The measures are meant to stop the spread of the virus, but they could impact universities in both countries as Chinese students return from summer vacation.sonos sonos One (Gen 2) - Voice Controlled Smart Speaker with Amazon Alexa Built-in - Black read more
International education was worth $21.7 billion (32.4 billion Australian dollars) to the Australian economy in 2017-2018 and $3.3 billion (5.1 billion New Zealand dollars) to New Zealand's.
The biggest group of international students in both countries are Chinese nationals.
Wuhan resident Helen Chen is one of them. She's currently stuck inside her parent's apartment in the city, and said she's been keeping busy in part by doing her work assignments.
There's still a lot we don't know about the coronavirus, and scientists internationally are racing to gather data and develop a treatment.
Here's what we can tell you so far:

Chinese stocks plunged Monday on the first day investors could react to the coronavirus outbreak in more than a week.
The Shanghai Composite opened 9% lower. The Shenzhen Component Index also plummeted 9% at open. Both are still down more than 7%.
Stock exchanges in Shanghai and Shenzhen had been closed since January 24 for the Lunar New Year. Markets elsewhere fell sharply last week as fears about the virus escalated. More than 14,300 people have been infected, the vast majority of them in mainland China.
China said before markets opened that it would pump billions of dollars into its markets to keep them stable. The People's Bank of China said Sunday that it would inject $1.2 trillion yuan ($173 billion) into the Chinese markets using the purchase of short-term bonds to shore up banks' ability to lend money. The measure will help maintain "reasonably ample liquidity" in the banking system and keep currency markets stable.
The net amount of liquidity being injected into the markets will be much lower. According to Reuters calculations using central bank data, more than $1 trillion yuan worth of other short-term bond agreements will mature Monday. That brings the net amount of cash flooding into the markets down to 150 billion yuan ($22 billion).

The first case of coronavirus was detected in central China in early December. Now, nearly two months later, it's a full-blown global emergency, with more than 17,205 confirmed cases across the world.

Canadian officials have fielded 325 requests for departure assistance from Hubei province in China due to the Wuhan coronavirus, according to a statement obtained by CNN from Global Affairs Canada. Ottawa is attempting to charter a plane to take Canadians from Wuhan back to Canada, the statement said.
There are currently 543 Canadians in Hubei who have registered with the voluntary Registration of Canadians Abroad service. Since registration is voluntary, this number is not a complete picture of Canadians in the region or in China, according to the statement.
Only Canadian citizens who have entered China with a Canadian passport will be allowed to board the plane back to Canada, Global Affairs Canada said. Additionally, Canadian citizens will need to have a valid Canadian passport along with a valid Chinese visa to board the plane. Canadians appearing with symptoms will not be able to board the aircraft, according to Global Affairs Canada. The country is still determining protocols
