A Chinese doctor who tried to issue the first warnings about the deadly coronavirus outbreak has died.

Li Wenliang contracted the virus while working at Wuhan Central Hospital.

He had sent out a warning to fellow medics on December 30 but police told him to stop “making false comments”.

There had been contradictory reports about his death, but the People’s Daily now says he died earlier today.

The virus has killed more than 560 people and infected 28,000 in China.
