Coronavirus death toll surpasses SARS numbers in China, traces of disease found on door handle
More people in China have already died from the ongoing coronavirus outbreak than from the SARS epidemic 17 years ago, Chinese officials said. Meanwhile, traces of the disease were spotted on a door handle used by the patient.

The death toll from the previously-unknown coronavirus in China has grown to 361 on Sunday, the country's National Health Commission said. This number exceeds the 349 fatalities from the severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) epidemic in mainland China in 2003.

Out of 57 newly reported deaths, 56 were in central Hubei Province, whose capital Wuhan remains the epicenter of the outbreak, and one in the city of Chongqing in China's southwest. So far, the only death from the virus outside mainland China was registered in the Philippines.

Overall, 17,205 cases of the virus have now been registered in China since the outbreak started in late December.

During a press briefing in Beijing on Monday, Deputy Director of the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) Lian Weiliang announced that China will step up measures to supply Wuhan with basic goods as it remains quarantined along with several other major cities.

Army troops stationed in Wuhan have taken over the delivery of food and basic necessities, using military trucks to stock local supermarkets. The authorities also ordered to boost the production of face masks and test kits after the Lunar New Year holidays in response to shortages in Wuhan and some other areas in Hubei.

Zhang Zhoubin, deputy head of a disease prevention center in the southeastern city of Guangzhou, said coronavirus was "found" on the door handle at a patient's home. "This reminds me that we have to do well in keeping hygiene at home, and it is important to frequently wash our hands," he said. Zhang warned that other areas prone to contamination include mobile phones, keyboards, and faucet handles.

Meanwhile, biotech companies in Wuhan have been conducting experiments on rats and monkeys, in hope of developing vaccines. The scientists identified three drugs "effective" in slowing down the spread of the virus in the cell structure, however, they have not been tested on humans yet, Wang Wei, director of Hubei’s Science and Technology Department, said.

Russia will isolate, quarantine, and deport foreigners struck down with the new Chinese coronavirus. The step was announced on Monday by Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin.

The country reported its first cases on Friday, raising fears that the epidemic affecting neighboring China could prompt a similar health emergency in Russia. However, Mishustin says the situation is currently contained, and there's no need for alarm.

"In order to prevent the spread of infection in our country, all necessary measures have been taken, the operational headquarters is working and, the situation is under control," he told his deputies at a meeting in Moscow. The threat has also led to the postponement of the Russian Investment Forum, an annual event hosted in the southern city of Sochi, which attracts thousands of visitors from around the country.

Mishustin explained that a national plan has been implemented to thwart the circulation of the virus, and that it has also been added to the list of highly dangerous diseases. The Wuhan Coronavirus is the 16th addition to the table which includes maladies such as HIV, malaria, cholera, and the plague. According to the Prime Minister, the measure "will allow the deportation of foreign citizens if they have such a disease and introduce special restrictive measures, including isolation and quarantine."

The movement of Chinese visitors across the Russian border is already limited. Mishustin noted that traffic on the frontier with Mongolia has been suspended, and a temporary ban has been imposed on issuing group tourist and work visas to Chinese citizens. From Monday, the passenger railway service between Russia and China has also been suspended.

The Prime Minister further made it clear that Russia is fully equipped with the necessary medicine to combat the coronavirus, stressing: "It is important ... that the prices in pharmacies remain at the same level. The Federal Antimonopoly Service and Roszdravnadzor have been instructed to monitor this." Some areas of the country have already reported increases in the cost of masks, with local media in Kursk speaking of a 3,500% price hike.

Vice-Premier Tatyana Galikova wanted to completely call off the Sochi event, saying "given the situation and the information that comes from China, I would like to ask you and all those present to make a decision to cancel the forum." But Mishustin instead suggested just to postpone it and proposed discussing possible dates with the organizers and key participants.

As of February 3, the Wuhan coronavirus has been diagnosed in more than 17,000 people and has killed at least 361, with the vast majority of incidents in China. There are currently two confirmed cases in Russia, in Western Siberia's Tyumen and the Far Eastern Zabaikalsky region. Both sufferers are Chinese citizens.

‘No effective therapeutics’: WHO downplays reports of ‘breakthrough’ in battle against coronavirus
The World Health Organization (WHO) has dismissed optimistic reports of a breakthrough in creating a vaccine and drugs that are effective against the Wuhan coronavirus which has gripped China and spread to 25 other nations.

“There are no known effective therapeutics against this 2019-nCoV (virus) and the WHO recommends enrolment into a randomized controlled trial to test efficacy and safety,” the international health body’s spokesman, Tarik Jasarevic, told journalists, as reported by Reuters.

The declaration made hopes of those who thought a solution for tackling the virus is around the corner, vanish. On Tuesday, Chinese media claimed that researchers at Zhejiang University, not far from Shanghai, allegedly found an effective drug for the virus. Later, the UK’s Sky News reported that researchers made a “significant breakthrough” in developing a vaccine.

The news sparked euphoria on social media and even made oil prices rise.The WHO cautioned, however, that the process of developing and testing a drug or vaccine against the new virus could take months or even years and could be plagued with setbacks.

The coronavirus which is thought to have originated in Wuhan, Hubei province has infected more than 24,500 people in 26 countries around the world, mostly in China, and claimed lives of almost 500 people. So far, 911 patients have recovered.

Your Most Pressing Questions about New Coronavirus, Answered


TEHRAN (FNA)- Scientists are racing to unravel the mysteries of a new coronavirus that has infected thousands and sparked global concern − triggering many questions from researchers and the public alike. In this rapidly evolving epidemic, many unknowns remain.

Here’s what we know so far about the new virus, called 2019 novel coronavirus, or 2019-nCoV. We will update these answers as more information becomes available.

Do you have questions about the new coronavirus that you’d like answered? E-mail them to feedback@sciencenews.org.

What is 2019-nCoV?

Coronaviruses are one of a variety of viruses that typically cause colds. But three members of the viral family have caused deadly outbreaks. Severe acute respiratory syndrome, or SARS, Middle East respiratory syndrome, or MERS, and now 2019-nCoV cause more severe disease, including pneumonia. This new coronavirus first emerged in Wuhan, China (SN: 1/10/20).

When did the outbreak start?

Chinese officials notified the World Health Organization of a pneumonia-like disease with an unknown cause in 44 patients on December 31, 2019. Initial reports tied the disease − now known to be 2019-nCoV − to a seafood market in Wuhan, a city in Hubei Province.

But the earliest cases may not be related to exposure at the market, researchers report January 24 in the Lancet. The earliest known patient with the illness, who got sick December 1, was not exposed at the market, according to the study.

So far, versions of the new virus isolated from patients in China and other countries aren’t very different from one another. “This lack of diversity fits with an origin in the human population in mid-November,” says Trevor Bedford, an evolutionary biologist at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and the University of Washington in Seattle.

Where did the virus come from?

Coronaviruses are zoonotic, meaning they originate in animals and sometimes leap to humans.

Bats are often thought of as a source of coronaviruses, but in most cases they don’t pass the virus directly on to humans. SARS probably first jumped from bats into raccoon dogs or palm civets before making the leap to humans. All the pieces necessary to re-create SARS are circulating among bats, though that virus has not been seen since 2004 (SN: 11/30/17).

MERS, meanwhile, went from bats to camels before leaping to humans (SN: 2/25/14). A paper published January 22 in the Journal of Medical Virology suggests that the new coronavirus has components from bat coronaviruses, but that snakes may have passed the virus to humans. But many virologists are skeptical that snakes are behind the outbreak (SN: 1/24/20).

Current data suggest that the virus made the leap from animals to humans just once and has been passing from person to person ever since. Based on how closely related the patient viruses are, animals from the seafood market probably didn’t give people the virus multiple times as researchers originally thought, Bedford says. If the virus leaped from animals to humans multiple times, the researchers would expect a greater number of mutations. Bedford and colleagues updated their conclusions and supporting data January 29 at nextstrain.org.

What are the symptoms of a 2019-nCoV infection?

An infection can cause fever, cough and difficulty breathing, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. These symptoms are similar to SARS, researchers report January 24 in the Lancet, though without intestinal symptoms or runny nose (SN: 1/24/20). Though many people with 2019-nCoV might experience mild symptoms, others can develop pneumonia.

Based on how MERS works, the CDC reports that symptoms of 2019-nCoV may appear from two to 14 days after exposure. This is just an estimate at this point, though.

How infectious is the virus?

Researchers don’t yet know for sure. But since 2019-nCoV has never infected humans before last year, it’s likely that everyone is vulnerable to infection with this virus.

A virus’s potential infectivity is described by its reproduction number called R0, or R naught (SN: 1/24/20). It’s a theoretical limit that researchers would expect to see when a disease-causing organism hits a population where no one is immune, says Maimuna Majumder, a computational epidemiologist at Boston Children’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School. “In general, we don’t see transmission rates as high as the reproduction number would suggest,” she says.

The number describes how many other people are likely to catch a virus from an infected person. SARS, for instance, has an R0 of 2.0 to 4.0 − each person who catches that virus has the potential to pass it on to two to four others. Generally, viruses with reproduction numbers greater than 1.0 may keep spreading if nothing is done to stop them. Outbreaks of viruses with an R0 that falls at or below 1.0 may eventually peter out.
この数字は、感染者から何人がウイルスを受け取る可能性があるかを示しています。たとえば、SARSのR0は2.0〜4.0です。そのウイルスを捕まえた各人は、他の2〜4人に感染させる可能性があります。一般的に、1.0を超える繁殖数を持つウイルスは、それらを止めるために何もしなければ、拡散し続ける可能性があります。 R0が1.0以下のウイルスのアウトブレイクは、最終的には減少する可能性があります。

Several research groups have been working to pin down an estimate based on outbreak information available to them and by harnessing different methods, such as simulating outbreaks or making assumptions about virus susceptibility, exposure and infection rates. Others have used an approach that pulls data from current cases and allows the researchers to describe what is happening in real time.

Current estimates vary, and some have already been revised as health officials report new cases of 2019-nCoV. Majumder and her Harvard colleague Kenneth Mandl estimate the R0 falls between 2.0 and 3.1. Meanwhile, Jonathan Read of Lancaster University in England and colleagues report a 2019-nCoV R0 value of 3.11, with a range from 2.39 to 4.13 on January 28 on medRxiv.org. But Christian Althaus and Julien Riou, both of the University of Bern in Switzerland, posted data to Github and bioRxiv.org on January 24 supporting their calculation that the new virus’s reproduction number is about 2.2, with a range between 1.4 and 3.8.

R0 is a tricky number to pin down, as the varying estimates reflect. It can also change as control measures are put in place, suggesting that as more cases emerge, these estimates will probably continue to shift. But currently the groups are coming up with similar numbers, suggesting 2019-nCoV’s R0 is in the same ballpark as SARS.

How does it spread?

Although initial Chinese officials initially reported little evidence of human-to-human transmission, it is, in fact, how it’s now spreading (SN: 1/10/20).

Coronaviruses like SARS and MERS − and now 2019-nCoV − probably spread between people similar to other respiratory diseases, the CDC says. Respiratory droplets from an infected person’s cough or sneeze can carry virus to another person, something that generally happens between close contacts.

Because severe coronaviruses infect deeper parts of the respiratory tract, compared with the kinds of coronaviruses that cause colds, people tend not to be contagious until they start to show symptoms, says Stanley Perlman, a virologist at the University of Iowa in Iowa City.

In previous outbreaks, “if somebody was going to get infected from [an] infected person, the virus had to get up into the upper airway so it could spread,” Perlman says, which wouldn’t happen until the patient was sick enough to start coughing.

Unlike SARS and MERS, however, there have been some reports of people without symptoms spreading 2019-nCoV, Chinese officials announced January 26. And because people might be infected and not show obvious symptoms, doctors should isolate patients and trace their contacts as soon as possible, researchers report January 24 in the Lancet.

Asymptomatic transmission is common for contagious viruses such as influenza or measles, but would be a new feature for the types of coronaviruses that cause epidemics, Perlman says.

It could make the outbreak harder to control because such patients can spread disease without signs that they’re sick themselves, making efforts such as airport screenings less useful. But asymptomatic people have never been the major driver of epidemics, Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases in Bethesda, Md., said in a news conference January 28.

How far has it spread?

So far, it’s unclear exactly how many cases there are, although epidemiologists are attempting to calculate this number.

But most of the thousands of people with confirmed diagnoses of the new virus are in China. But several other countries − 17 as of January 29 − have also confirmed isolated cases of the disease, many of whom had just returned from a trip to China.

A majority of countries outside of China have not reported human-to-human transmission. But a man who had recently been to China transmitted the virus to his son in Vietnam, researchers confirmed January 28 in the New England Journal of Medicine. Four people in Germany have also contracted 2019-nCoV after a visit from a colleague from China, Reuters reports. Those patients’ symptoms are currently mild, officials say.



WHO declares international health emergency over coronavirus outbreak
The World Health Organization has declared a “public health emergency of international concern” over the outbreak of the 2019nCoV, or the Wuhan coronavirus. The international body didn't recommend travel and trade restrictions.

WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus called the coronavirus “a previously unknown pathogen, which has escalated into an unprecedented outbreak” at a press conference on Thursday, but said the WHO was not recommending restrictions of trade or travel with China, where the virus originated.

Tedros pointed out that the declaration was "not a vote of no confidence in China," but made out of concern for other countries, with "weaker" healthcare systems.

China’s response to the outbreak has been “very impressive,” the WHO chief added. “So is China’s commitment to transparency and to supporting other countries."

China is actually setting a new standard for outbreak response.

While the majority of coronavirus cases have been registered in China, the WHO confirmed there were 98 confirmed cases elsewhere in the world – including eight cases of direct transmission in Germany, Japan, Vietnam and the US.

The “vast majority” of cases outside of China have either traveled to Wuhan or been in contact with someone who has, the WHO officials noted.

“The only way we will defeat this outbreak is for all countries to work together in a spirit of solidarity and cooperation,” Tedros said. “We are all in this together, and we can only stop it together.”

Coronavirus is the unofficial name of the pathogen, which the WHO is referring to by its interim name, 2019-nCoV. The condition caused by it is being called “2019-nCoV acute respiratory disease.”

The virus first appeared in Wuhan, in China’s Hubei province, on December 31. Since then, it has infected at least 8,130 people in China, at least 100 of whom have died. The 2019-nCoV appears to be closely related to the SARS vector, which infected 8,100 people across 17 different countries in 2003, killing 774.

The much faster pace of coronavirus infections, however, has the WHO and public health officials in China very concerned.

Wuhan Coronavirus Infected Toll Hits 9,692 - Chinese Officials
Within the past 24 hours, over 1,980 new cases of the pneumonia-type infection dubbed 2019-nCoV have reportedly been recorded in 17 cities across China. While the number of people exposed to the new strain of coronavirus continues rising, Chinese officials continue to assert that they are confident that the outbreak will be quickly contained.

The Chinese Authorities made an update on Friday on the number of infected and deceased. According to the official data, at least 9,692 have contracted the coronavirus and more than 200 died due to the outbreak of the Wuhan virus.

"As of midnight on January 30 [16:00 GMT Thursday], the National Health Commission received information about 9,692 confirmed cases of pneumonia caused by a new type of coronavirus from 31 provinces [regions and municipalities]. 1,527 people are in critical condition, 213 have died, 171 people have been discharged from hospitals," China's National Health Commission (NHC) commission said in a statement.

The World Health Organization has declared a public health emergency of international concern over the outbreak.

Permanent Representative to the United Nations Zhang Jun told reporters on Thursday that Beijing has reached progress in identifying the nature of the virus, adding that Chinese specialists were able to successfully treat more than 130 people.

The ground zero of new coronavirus - which was first reported last December - is said to be a seafood market in China’s Wuhan and has since spread to at least 19 countries.

Authorities have globally suspended air traffic to and from China, increased border and airport control, and put travelers with even slight traces of flu symptoms into isolated wards under quarantine.

The number of confirmed cases of the new coronavirus has already surpassed the number of cases of the severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) during the 2002-2003 outbreak, caused by another type of coronavirus.

China’s PM calls for ‘resolute fight’ against coronavirus outbreak as death toll climbs to 106 with over 1,700 new cases
The death toll from China’s coronavirus outbreak has risen to 106, with the authorities in Hubei province, at the heart of the crisis, saying on Tuesday it killed 24 more people. Over 4,500 cases have been confirmed nationwide.

The death toll from the respiratory disease, caused by the novel coronavirus named 2019-nCoV, climbed to double digits on Tuesday. The health commission in the Hubei province, where it had originated, confirmed that 100 people have died from the deadly virus, which brings the total number of deaths within China to at least 106. The majority of the new lethal cases, 24, were reported in Hubei province, while one patient died in in the Chinese capital of Beijing.

Mind-boggling 1,771 new cases have been confirmed, driving the total number of those infected nationwide to at least 4,515 as of Tuesday.

The rapid spread of the virus prompted Beijing to extend its New Year holidays to February 2, while China's National Immigration Administration called on residents to refrain from travelling abroad to curb the spread of the disease, that has already spilled over to at least 15 countries, including the US, Canada and Germany, which reported its first confirmed case on Tuesday.

Although China has put over a dozen of cities at the center of outbreak, including Wuhan, where it had sprung to life, on lockdown, concerns over its continuous spread are mounting. The US State Department updated its travel advisory on Monday, explicitly urging Americans to avoid travelling to Hubei, an example that was swiftly followed by Canada.

The State Department also said it would be extracting US consulate personal from Wuhan on Wednesday morning. The charter plane would be sent to bring back the staffers and other US citizens “at greater risk from coronavirus” that are stranded in Wuhan. A State Department spokesman noted, however, that the capacity to airlift those willing was “extremely limited.” Speaking to CBS, they said that about 1,000 Americans are currently in the city.

The outbreak has poured cold water on the Asian, European and US stock markets, with oil prices also taking a hit, down about 10 percent in ten days.

The Chinese authorities, meanwhile, have vowed to step up efforts in containing the spread of the virus. Chinese PM Li Keqiang travelled to Wuhan on Monday, paying a special visit to the Jinyintan Hospital, overwhelmed with patients, including those severely ill.

Wearing protective mask, Li met with medical staffers, promising to send 2,500 additional medical workers to the city along with 20,000 pairs of protective gear.

"We must fight resolutely to win the battle against the epidemic," Li said, as cited by Xinhua, urging onstruction workers to “race against the time” to build a makeshift hospital that is to care for hundreds of patients.

"We must use every possible means to admit all the patients (into the hospital)," he said.

The personnel is expected to arrive to the city, hardest-hit by the outbreak, within the next two days.


‘Grave situation’: Xi says China can ‘win the battle’ against coronavirus, but spread is ‘accelerating’
China’s President Xi Jinping has encouraged his nation to win over the deadly epidemic which has claimed 41 lives and saw the travel of millions restricted. He warned that the situation is grave and worrisome – but not untenable.

“As long as we have steadfast confidence, work together, [rely on] scientific prevention and cures, and precise policies, we will definitely be able to win the battle,” President Xi told a politburo meeting, according to Xinhua.

However, the country is facing a “grave situation” as the new coronavirus is “accelerating its spread,” he has warned. The meeting, which took place against the backdrop of Chinese New Year festivities, focused on the measures necessary to fight the outbreak, state television reported on Saturday.

Thought to have originated from wild animals such as bats, the 2019-nCoV has killed 41 people in China so far and has infected more than 1,300 globally, most of them still in China.

In a positive development on Saturday, Chinese media said 38 patients have beaten the deadly virus. However, there is no specific medication or vaccine known so far, although countries around the world, including Russia, are hastily working to identify one.

In mainland China, additional restrictions are to be imposed on intercity bus routes, starting Sunday. Medical staff have been tasked with checking travelers’ temperatures for any signs of fever – the most apparent symptom of coronavirus, which is followed by a dry cough and leads to shortness of breath.

China confirms 9 deaths & 440 cases in coronavirus outbreak, vows close cooperation with WHO, neighbors
A pneumonia-like virus sweeping China has claimed its ninth victim and spread to a total of 440 confirmed patients, according to Chinese health officials, who said they would boost international cooperation to contain the illness.

Starting in the city of Wuhan, the novel coronavirus has now spread across 13 Chinese provinces, said Li Bin, the vice minister of China’s National Health Commission, on Tuesday. She said health officials are now taking “initiative” to better equip China’s own healthcare workers, and to cooperate with the World Health Organization and neighboring countries to study the pathogen and contain its spread.

There may now be up to 2,197 cases of “close contact” with confirmed carriers, however another Health Commission official said he has yet to see evidence for “super spreaders” of the illness, or highly contagious patients, adding that “relevant measures” were being taken in the event such patients arise.

New deadly virus spreads fear across China as 17 more people fall victim to mysterious illness
In the Chinese city of Wuhan, the epicenter of a viral outbreak, 17 more cases of the new coronavirus have been reported by authorities – three of which have been described as “severe.”

The virus has infected a total of 62 people in Wuhan, eight of whom are in a severe condition, while 19 have been cured and discharged from hospital. The rest are still receiving treatment and are being kept in isolation.

Two people have died so far from the new form of coronavirus. A 69-year-old man died on Wednesday after the infection caused pulmonary tuberculosis and damaged multiple organs.

Scientists with the MRC Center for Global Infectious Disease Analysis at Imperial College London warned that the number of cases in the city was approaching 1,700 – much higher than official estimates.

Three cases have been reported overseas – two in Thailand and one in Japan. India has issued a travel warning in light of the dangerous new virus on the move in the country, with officials boosting security and health screenings at Indian airports.

The advisory follows a similar warning from US health officials, who began screening for the bug at three major airports on Friday afternoon after the virus claimed its second victim in Wuhan.

China coronavirus spreads with no visible symptoms as death toll grows to 80 & US confirms 5th case
The death toll from the 2019-nCoV coronavirus outbreak in China has reached 80 with hundreds of new infections detected. Meanwhile, US public health officials have confirmed new cases of the coronavirus in Los Angeles and Arizona.

With 24 new death reported in Hubei Province – the epicenter of the outbreak – the overall death toll from the novel coronavirus in China now stands at 80, with nearly 2,800 confirmed cases countrywide.

China has also come forward with news that the virus can spread before any symptoms show. The country's health minister Ma Xiaowei confirmed the bad news on Sunday, which has panicked some US doctors.

Dr. William Schaffner, an adviser to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, called the news a “game changer” and said this means the virus is “more contagious than we originally thought.”

Each of the five US cases are people who had traveled to Wuhan, China, recently. Each of the five are being treated and are currently in stable condition. The most recent victim is a member of the Arizona Student University, according to the Arizona Department of Health. The victim is not currently “severely ill.”

Though there are only five confirmed cases in the US, the CDC they have “just over 100” people being investigated for the disease and they expect that number to go up.

The Chinese government is undertaking some drastic measures to contain the spread of the new virus. Wuhan, a city of 11 million people, has been virtually quarantined, while strict travel restrictions have been imposed in the entire Hubei Province.

There are currently no vaccines to the novel coronavirus, which has been described as similar to the SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) pathogen, which killed hundreds in China and Hong Kong from 2002 to 2003. The disease is thought to have originated in an animal before being transmitted to a human, though the specific origins are still being debated.

Chinese health chiefs warn coronavirus is growing ‘stronger’, MUTATION closely monitored by scientists
The mysterious coronavirus is now spreading more rapidly and little is still known about it, China's senior health officials said, as Beijing grapples with shortages of hazmat suits and protective masks.

"The virus' transmission ability has become stronger," National Health Commission Minister Ma Xiaowei said at a press briefing on Sunday.

Ma said that the previously-unknown coronavirus, which has already killed 56 people in China, is spreading faster, while the outbreak is entering a "more serious and complicated phase."

The official noted that the government's knowledge of the new virus remains limited and they remain puzzled about the risks posed by its mutations. Beijing will dispatch additional teams of medics to assist patients and study the virus, he added.

Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention head Fu Gao said that there were no signs of clear mutation of the virus so far, but further surveillance is needed.

Local media has reported about the shortage of basic protective gear, like goggles and masks, in Wuhan, the capital of the central Hubei Province, which has been hit hardest by the outbreak. Vice Minister of Industry and Information Technology Wang Jiangping said that Hubei needs about 100,000 protective medical suits per day but the factories across the country are making only 30,000 of them daily.

The authorities have ordered an increase in production and have diverted millions of masks, along with scores of hazmat suits, gloves and goggles, to Wuhan. The local office of the Red Cross has set up a 24-hour hotline for accepting donations of equipment. E-commerce giant Alibaba, laptop-maker Lenovo, and the world's largest gaming company Tencent have all pledged to donate large sums of money to purchase medical supplies.

Wuhan and nine other major cities in Hubei were partially quarantined in an effort to contain the outbreak. Ma said that the week-long Lunar New Year vacation provides the best window for the "isolation and disinfection" of the area.

Don’t Get Cold Feet: What's Best Thing You Can Do to Protect Yourself From New Coronavirusから要点を抜粋

1 基本的に風邪やインフルエンザの予防と同じ
2 足を冷やさない。
3 新しいコロナウイルスは、先行したSARSおよびMERSの致死率にまだ達していない。致死率は3%前後と推定される。SARSおよびMERSの致死率は10%と36%。
4 コロナウイルスは呼吸器ウイルスのファミリーであり、「風邪」の約10%がコロナウイルスファミリーのメンバーによって引き起こされている。
5 このウイルスは、高齢者、他の病気にかかっている人、免疫システムに障害のある人にとってより危険である可能性。
6 コロナウイルスは飛沫によって拡散すると言われている。
7 手を洗い、手で顔に触らないこと。
8 このウィルスが空気感染するとの説もあり、日本のバス運転手の感染例からは、どうもそうらしい。
9 中国はよくやっており、他の国の準備に役立つウイルスに関する最初の情報を共有したため、中国や他の国の別の都市への旅行者で症例が検出された。
10 このウイルスの起源は、武漢の市場でコウモリに由来する可能性が高いが、他の動物に由来する可能性も。
11 感染の広がり具合と「どの程度簡単に感染するか」を判断する必要がある。
12 ウイルスが人と人との間で感染する可能性がある。ホリデーシーズンでリスクがある。
13 流行地域から来た人とは同席したりしないようにする。相手の気分を害してもこれは仕方がない。流行地域から来た人は、その人が14日間の自宅待機をすべきもの。スーパーなどでは感染者に近づく恐れがあるので、できるだけ混雑時間帯を避ける。もちろんマスクが必要。通勤通学時が一番リスクがある。混雑時を避けるしかないだろうか。

チャーター便で帰国させ、その後どうする? もし発症すれば、電車でなくタクシーで病院へ向かえとテレビでアドバイスしていたが。感染を拡大するだけ。アベはただアメリカのマネをして何も考えずに「チャーター便」を言ってみただけ?


でも、デマも多いですね。武漢の人口11000万人で500万人が逃げたとか。東京都の人口とあまり変わらないんですよ。中国の正月の帰省ラッシュは激しいからその流れに乗って武漢から人が逃げた? 逃げたのは車を持っている人たちだとされています。そのためトンネルの出口に土を盛ったりした。

コロナウィルスに、爆弾テロで対抗? 立命館大でそんなことを教えているのか?
感染者数千万? 何を目的に、こんなバカげたデマを流す? 今は感染症の封じ込めと患者の治療を最優先にすべきときだろ! 4%でなく15%? パニックを煽るのが目的か! サイテー野郎だな。

・・・この方、立命館大学の准教授のようですが、立命館大学は学生の被ばく体験を推進したり、ISISテロリストを支持するような教員がいたり、現地で逮捕された人もいたのでは? こんな大学で学んだら頭おかしくなってしまう。

生き地獄の中国の武漢に戻つて来る武漢市民なんかいませんよ。特攻日本人なら戻って来るでしょうね。武漢コロナウイルスは、生物兵器といつているひともいます。世界に35万人のインテリジェンスネットワークを持つている超大国米国も慌てていますね。日本のテレビでは、福島第一原発の巨大な核爆発事故の時と同じで武漢コロナウイルスは、たいした事は、ないと洗脳していますね。被曝で免疫力が落ちている日本人とても危ないですね。軍神安倍総理 助けて 万歳。
