Mr Hunt has come under fire for failing to appear in public since the attack, which hit 47 trusts in England and 13 Scottish health boards. It spread cyber chaos worldwide, hitting Britain's hospital network, Germany's railway and scores of companies and government agencies.

The list of institutions has grown as more become aware of hacks and as variants of the virus spread.

The attack is still causing problems in some hospitals. The problem is still ongoing, the company said.

Nissan: The carmaker said in a statement that "some Nissan entities were recently targeted" but "there has been no major impact on our business". "If someone kidnaps your child, you may pay your ransom but there is no guarantee your child will return".

Colleges: Internet security firm Qihoo360 issued a "red alert" over the weekend, saying a large number of colleges and students in China had been hit by the ransomware attack.

Deutsche Bahn: The German railway company told CNNMoney that due to the attack "passenger information displays in some stations were inoperative" as were "some ticket machines".

"All GPs surgeries did open, though some of them had to use pen and paper".

When contacted, the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission and CyberSecurity Malaysia also said they had not received any report of a WannaCry infection in Malaysia.

Industrial conglomerate Hitachi Ltd. 6501.T said the attack had affected its systems at some point over the weekend, leaving them unable to receive and send e-mails or open attachments in some cases. The company said the virus has been localized and "technical work is underway to destroy it and update the antivirus protection".

Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In) has come out with list of dos and donts and webcast on how to protect networks from the global ransomware attack.

A spokesman for the Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing, one of the region's biggest bourses, said all systems were so far working normally.

The cyberattack that spread malicious software around the world, shutting down networks at hospitals, banks and government agencies, was thwarted by a young British researcher and an affordable domain registration, with help from another 20-something security engineer in the U.S. "At this stage, we do not have any evidence that patient data has been accessed". "I'm anxious about how the numbers will continue to grow when people go to work and turn their machines on Monday morning".

When you're using public WiFi networks, make sure you tell your system that you're on a public network (many will ask if it's a public or home computer.) That tells your operating system that it's functioning in a potentially threat-filled environment and it will close off some of its more vulnerable software ports to the outside.

The UK government called a meeting of its crisis response committee, known as Cobra, to discuss how to handle the situation.

At least three local organisations have been hit by WannaCrypt/WannaCry, according to the Australian government.

State police: Police in the southern Indian state of Andhra Pradesh said 25% of its systems were hit by the attack late Saturday. According to The Guardian, the United Kingdom attacks hit at least 16 National Health System (NHS) facilities and directly compromised the information technology (IT) systems that are used to ensure patient safety. "Our cybercrime teams are now working to retrieve lost data", Joshua said.
