As of 10 February, twenty-seven foreigners in China have been infected with the coronavirus, two of them have died, the country's foreign ministry said.
An American died on 6 February and a Japanese individual died on 8 February, ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said during a daily news briefing in Beijing.
He added that three people have been discharged from the hospital.
An outbreak of pneumonia caused by a new strain of coronavirus started in the Chinese city of Wuhan last December and has since spread to more than 25 countries around the world.
The death toll from the new coronavirus in China currently stands at 908 people with more than 40,000 other confirmed cases.
In late January, the World Health Organisation (WHO) declared the coronavirus outbreak a global health emergency.
