Update 2-12-2020: Coronavirus (COVID-19) Cases Explode

Just yesterday, it was reported that the rate of new cases of coronavirus, now called COVID-19, was slowing down.

Today, the number of cases exploded to over 60,000 globally and deaths increased to over 1,300.

Here's the latest map:

CNBC also has a report on the sudden increase.  It says that the increase is because they are now including "clinically diagnosed" cases. 

What were they including before if not the clinically diagnosed cases? 

If they have broadened the criteria for diagnosis for COVID-19, we should expect to see bigger increases per day than we've seen so far.  We'll soon find out.

Many have long suspected that China was not reporting the full extent of outbreak in their country.
