The general public doesn't need to take and precautions "beyond the usual measures recommended to prevent other common respiratory viruses during the winter period", the provincial health officer's office said.
The symptoms of the new coronavirus, provisionally designated by the World Health Organization as 2019-nCoV, are similar to those of cold but may be accompanied by fever and fatigue, dry cough and dyspnea (shortness of breath).
Thursday's figures cover the previous 24 hours and represent an increase of 38 deaths and 1,737 cases for a total of 7,711.
China's National Health Commission has confirmed the virus can be transmitted from person to person through "droplet transmission" - where a virus is passed on due to an infected person sneezing or coughing - as well as by direct contact.
That system will be tested as the virus spreads.
"Many coronaviruses produce cold-like symptoms that resolve without complications, but some coronaviruses can lead to pneumonia and complications, including death", the email said.
Similar to the US evacuation flight, a Japanese flight from Wuhan landed safely in Tokyo on Wednesday.

Like the similar Sars and influenza viruses, the new coronavirus is thought to be particularly a risk for elderly and people with pre-existing illnesses. Even after inviting worldwide experts to investigate the epidemic, SARS patients were moved from hospitals and driven around in ambulances to hide the true extent of the virus' spread. If it turns out that the new coronavirus can indeed be spread by people who don't show any symptoms, "a pandemic is a scenario that we have to consider".
Scientists expect many crucial questions about the virus' behavior will be answered in the coming weeks as the outbreak evolves and it becomes clearer how people are infected.
