The death toll from the new coronavirus epidemic in China has risen to 1,113, and health experts have finally picked a name for the virus.

Chinese health officials said on Wednesday that 97 new deaths and 2,015 new cases had emerged in the previous 24 hours nationwide.

Cases of infection also now stood at 44,653, the officials said.

Authorities have locked down dozens of millions of people in the epicenter of the epidemic — Hubei Province’s capital, Wuhan — and several other cities and regions in an unprecedented effort to contain the outbreak.

International efforts are also being made to contain the virus, which has spread to dozens of countries across the globe so far.
