WASHINGTON (AP) — In a bipartisan rebuke of China, the U.S. Senate has unanimously approved a bill to impose sanctions on business and groups — including the police — that undermine Hong Kong’s autonomy or restrict freedoms promised to Hong Kong residents.


China has identified a new strain of coronavirus that has led to at least 17 deaths and hundreds of others falling ill. The first cases appeared in the industrial and transporation hub of Wuhan, in central China.  

An official at Missouri State University, which has hundreds of Chinese students, says there haven’t been any reported cases at MSU yet.
