Among the 30 high-risk cities worldwide receiving airline travellers from 18 high-risk cities in mainland China, Bangkok tops the list, followed by Hong Kong, Taipei, Seoul and Tokyo.

Beijing, Guangzhou, Shanghai, and Chongqing have been considered high-risk cities within mainland China in addition to the Chinese provinces of Guangdong, Zhejiang, Sichuan and Henan.

Researchers used domestic population movement data from 2013 to 2015 from Baidu Location-Based Services in addition to international air travel data of 2018 to understand the usual movement patterns of people within China and across the world during the annual 40-day Lunar New Year celebrations.

Thailand has 14 confirmed coronavirus cases as of 29 January, while Singapore has 10 confirmed cases, followed by Taiwan with eight.

Around 800 people are under observation in India and ten in hospital.  Meanwhile, a 23-year-old Indian man, from the state of Tripura, died in a Malaysian hospital from coronavirus, his family member has claimed.
